Inspiring Hope and Freedom
from Domestic Violence

New Outreach Center
COH-building

Our Story

Initially offering a safe haven for those escaping dangerous situations, over the past 35 years, we've expanded our services to meet the evolving needs of families. In 1997 we introduced outreach services to support individuals who didn't require shelter. Additionally, we now operate four supportive housing programs, further enriching our comprehensive service approach. Our shelter, outreach, and housing programs collectively offer a wide range of services to support, empower, and bring hope to those affected by domestic violence.

 

Growing Need

As awareness of domestic violence has risen, so how's the demand for outreach services. We currently lease two offices spaces in Cornelia to accommodate programs and staff. In October 2022, the board of directors, driven by a strategic initiative to decrease operating costs, chose facility ownership over ongoing leasing, aiming to enhance resource allocation and ensure long-term financial stability. Moreover, ensuring the safety and confidentiality of those utilizing our service is paramount, requiring protection through security doors, cameras, and confidential parking to safeguard both survivors and staff.

Leave Your Legacy

We aim to raise $550,000 for our Serving Others Under One Roof initiative. Please consider contributing as a 'Partner in HOPE' to help Circle of Hope achieve our goal. Your support is an investment in transforming countless families' lives, guiding them from fear and abuse to safety and stability.

 

RENEE' SARAH PAVILION

In memory of Renee’ Sarah, a pavilion will be built on the property

I am no bird; and no net ensnares me; I am a free
human being with an independent will.
