Emergency Domestic Violence Shelter
A 15 bed capacity emergency shelter provides immediate safety to victims of domestic violence and their children at a safe, confidential location and is accessible 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Services are provided for families while in shelter to maintain their safety until it is safe for them to resume life on their own. Promise Place is a state certified shelter.
A 12 month housing program is available to survivors of domestic violence who are past the immediate danger but need a temporary place to stay until more permanent housing can be afforded. This program provides continued emotional support and linkage to resources.
Promise Place provides information on domestic violence to the community through workshops, health fairs, as well as other community and business presentations. Please contact our Administrative Office at (770) 461-3839 to schedule Promise Place to come speak to your organization.
