Georgia Coalition Against Domestic Violence
Description

 

What We Do: The Georgia Coalition Against Domestic Violence (GCADV) is Georgia’s federally recognized domestic violence coalition, representing over 53 domestic violence organizations and programs across the state.  We engage in capacity building, communications, and public policy efforts to ensure effective domestic violence prevention and intervention. GCADV  and its members and allies work collaboratively, along with community, corporate, and foundation partners, to achieve social and systems change on behalf of domestic violence survivors and their families.  Every day we motivate, inform, and connect with stakeholders concerned with this issue.  No one organization offers all of the solutions, and we believe that by coming together with a wide range of partners and creating new approaches, we can ensure that survivors are safe and empowered and healthy relationships are nurtured.

Warmlines
Description

 

A warm line is an alternative to a crisis line that is run by “peers,” generally those who have had their own experiences of trauma that they are willing to speak of and acknowledge.

Unlike a hotline for those in immediate crisis, warmlines provide early intervention with emotional support that can prevent a crisis. The lines are typically free, confidential peer-support services staffed by those who have experienced mental health conditions themselves. If you are outside of the State of Georgia use the link below:
