Get Involved

There are many ways individuals and groups can support victims of domestic violence and Circle of Hope. Below are a few examples of ways to get involved. Please contact the administrative office at sdow@gacircleofhope.org or 706-776-3406 if you have a special project or donation.

Volunteer

The purpose of Circle of Hope’s Volunteer Program is to provide opportunities in which the community can assist us in providing the critical and often life saving services we offer to victims of domestic violence. We could not meet the demand for services without the support and dedication of our volunteers. Circle of Hope’s Volunteer Program assists staff in providing many direct and indirect services including telephone crisis intervention, transportation, housing and grounds maintenance, working with children, attending court, offering professional services or working in the Thrift Store. For more information about our Volunteer Program please see links on the right of page or contact our Community Awareness Coordinator at aswing@gacircleofhope.org or 706-776-3406.

In-Kind Donations

In-kind donations include donating items on our needs list and donating professional services such as haircuts and legal assistance. Additionally, we accept car donations. Donated cars are given to residents who have no transportation and therefore have no way to get to and from work. By donating a car, you are helping change a life by giving someone the tools they need to become self-sufficient.
