Were do I go? This is what keeps these victims from leaving and choosing a better life for themselves, free of abuse or assault. Many of these women remain in this situation for they fear of what their spouse or partner can do to them, or simply because they don’t have anyone else to turn to. The Gulf Coast Women’s Center for Nonviolence has served as a safe house for these victims since 1977, growing into the largest, most comprehensive program in the state of Mississippi.
This center has helped more than 20,500 women, children and men through their shelter and non-residential programs since they first opened their doors. Some of their non-residential programs include Domestic Violence Program, Sexual Assault Program, Survivors of Homicide Victims Program, Northcutt Legal Clinic, Criminal Justice Programs and Children’s Programs. They have programs to help these victims with every step to a better life.
The Gulf Coast Women’s Center for Nonviolence receives approximately 12,000 children, adolescents and adults annually for their violence prevention sessions and their 24-hour call line receives over 15,000 calls per year for assistance and information. We are on a mission to support the center and the amazing work that they do to help prevent, educate and stop domestic violence in our community.
