Northwest Georgia Family Crisis Center

The purpose of the Northwest Georgia Family Crisis Center is to end violence in the home by providing shelter, advocacy, and support to survivors while working in the community to change attitudes, beliefs, and behaviors. We have three outreach offices as well as an emergency shelter. Assisting residents with temporary protective orders is likely our most labor intensified service. Our trained advocates help complete the orders, accompany residents to all court hearings, and file all necessary documents with the clerk’s office. However, we also assist our clients with getting back on their feet after fleeing domestic violence situations and recognize that process is different for everyone. We provide financial assistance as well as advocacy for child care, housing, car payments, and finding jobs. All of our services are confidential and provided at no costs to the clients. We also offer bilingual services.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

The Northwest Georgia Family Crisis Center offers safe shelter for all victims of domestic violence and their children. All services are confidential and are provided at no cost to the client. A 24-hour hotline is available to the victim so that shelter placement can be made at any time. Initial placement is based on the need of each individual victim. The shelter is a 36-bed facility and is certified by the state as a family violence shelter. It meets all state and local fire and safety standards. Trained staff supervise the facility 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The shelter consists of 11 bedrooms, 7 bathrooms, 2 communal living room areas, and 1 communal kitchen. During a victims stay at the shelter, they are given the time they need to make plans and work out issues they must face as they move into their own safe environment.

Clients need a wide range of services in order to move out of domestic violence situations and create violence free homes. The services offered to these victims are critical to assist them as they make the decisions and implement changes in their lives necessary to be successful.

The Northwest Georgia Family Crisis Center directly impacts the health needs of clients by providing prevention services to break the cycle of violence. Without safe shelter, and supportive services this could very well lead to more domestic violence both currently and in the future, as children would be likely to grow up and create families plagued by the same problems as their parents. By increasing a clients knowledge about domestic violence, they will be less vulnerable to accepting violence as a normal part of a relationship.

The agency provides basic needs for clients in the shelter and those receiving outreach services, if there is a need. Victims are often left with nothing but whats in hand and on their backs. The agency provides all
basic needs while staying in the shelter and provides 3 meals a day. The agency also provides food boxes, basic necessities, rent assistance and utility assistance for clients participating in our outreach program. As clients struggle with domestic violence issues, it is often hard for them to succeed in their daily living situation,
work and school. By utilizing safe shelter and safe supportive services, they are able to focus on stabilizing themselves as well as their family.

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Jan 01 - Dec 31

SOURCE: IRS Form 990 info

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.
