THE STORY:

Our Safe Families Office, located at the Fulton County Courthouse, is the primary point of entry for victims of domestic violence to receive FREE legal and supportive assistance. The Safe Families Office opened in February, 2009, as a collaborative effort among the Fulton County Superior Court (“the Court”), AVLF and Partnership Against Domestic Violence (“PADV”). The mission of the Safe Families Office is to provide legal and safety planning assistance on a walk-in basis at the Fulton County Courthouse to survivors of sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking. The Safe Families Office is staffed and managed by seasoned employees of AVLF and PADV as well as volunteers from both organizations.

Committed to the core belief that survivors must be equipped with legal and safety planning information in order make the best and safest decisions for their individual circumstances, AVLF and PADV work alongside each other to provide wrap-around services to survivors. This client-centered collaboration allows legal assistance, social services assistance, and safety planning assistance to take place in one location during one intake appointment. After intake is completed, appropriate cases are considered for placement with volunteers who are trained and mentored by AVLF staff.

Each year, the Safe Families Office assists more than 2,500 victims of violence. Your donation will help fund this important community program.
