If you are experiencing abuse or violence of any kind- from someone you are dating or have dated, a family member, or anyone else- there is help.
There are agencies that can help you find emergency shelter, create a safety plan, apply for a protective order and more. This help is free and confidential.
In Georgia, you can find a domestic violence center in your county on the Georgia Coalition Against Domestic Violence website at GCDV.org. You can call their 24-hour statewide hotline at 1-800-334-2836 to talk to a domestic violence advocate.
If you are unsure whether you are experiencing abuse, advocates are available to discuss your situation.
You can also contact the National Domestic Violence Hotline. Advocates there are available to talk 24/7 on the phone at 1-800-799-7233 or online at thehotline.org.
