Have you ever wondered what Genesis House is all about? We want you to walk through our doors, virtually that is. We want our community to see where and how your donations are used. Maybe you are experiencing domestic abuse and seeing inside the walls of our shelter will help with some of the unknowns. Join our Executive Director, Angela Braun as she walks you through our community women and children’s shelter.
The South Central Committee on Family Violence, Inc. Exists so There Will Be:
- Empowerment for women and children to connect to their personal power
- Resources for women in abusive situations
- Assistance in reaching goals
- Safety for women and children in facility and protection planning
- Education to the community to decrease the incidence of abuse
- Support for women and children 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to help them make informed choices.
That physical, emotional, sexual, and economic abuse toward another individual is violence.
Such violence is damaging and contrary to standards of reasonable behaviour in our communities.
We consider such violence to be the concern of all members of our society.
We believe that victims and abusers should receive the assistance/support of their communities in the changes they choose to make.
