Legal Advocacy

Promise Place provides comprehensive assistance with legal advocacy. This includes providing assistance in filing Temporary Protective Orders (TPOs) – a legal remedy that assists victims of domestic violence and their children in obtaining protection through the judicial system. A Temporary Protective Order (TPO) can provide a measure of safety for a victim by ordering the abuser to stay away, granting temporary custody of minor children, and granting temporary financial support. For more information about assistance with legal advocacy please contact our Administrative Office at (770) 461-3839.

Teen Dating Violence  Awareness & Prevention Program

Promise Place provides education to youth through our Teen Dating Violence Prevention Program. This program is presented to primarily 9th grade students in the Griffin Judicial Circuit and helps to educate and provide the resources that students need to both prevent and end teen dating violence. Promise Place recognizes that in our efforts to stop the cycle of violence we must include these children so that they can be educated before becoming victims themselves.

This program not only utilizes local resources but also enlists the assistance of local volunteers to help make this program successful. By engaging the community, Promise Place is adding to the many voices that are speaking out against the crime of domestic violence. Promise Place provides this educational program to over 2,500 students every year. Please contact Promise Place at our Administrative Office at (770) 461-3839 for more information about this program.
