Emergency Shelter

Cherokee Family Violence Center’s 12-bed emergency shelter provides a homelike location for families who have been victims of domestic violence, and 24-hour staff assistance. The  shelter’s location is kept confidential.  Shelter staff provide unwavering, client-focused support, food, shelter, transportation for the women and children residing there.

The shelter is the only Domestic Violence Shelter in Cherokee County and is certified by the Governor’s Office of Children and Families. The goal of this program is to provide safe, temporary shelter for victims of Intimate Partner Violence and Staking and their children, while providing them with assistance and support to identify and achieve their personal and safety goals.

Our emergency shelter houses the 24-hour English and Spanish crisis lines, and is the hub for the State of Georgia's Spanish Language Domestic Violence Hotline.
