Intimate Partner/Family Violence Services
Confidential 24-Hour Crisis Line
We are available to talk anytime for support and to explore options.
Call 739-8622 or 1-800-742-7794 to talk or to access shelter.
We provide a safe haven for women and children available 24-hours (we can assist men and teenage boys). The shelter is a warm home-like environment. Whether you need just a couple days, weeks or longer we are available as a safe alternative to violence and abuse. A typical stay is up to 30 days. During a stay we can assist you with safety planning, locating safe housing, employment, health care, children’s services and identifying other resources.
We are available 24/hrs for one-on-one time to discuss feelings, options and planning - 910-739-8622
Seeking help from law enforcement or the court system can be a hard step to take. We can accompany you when going to court and provide assistance with obtaining a domestic violence protection order. We have worked with law enforcement and the Courts on behalf of survivors of violence for over 20 years. We can help you understand the process and what your options are.
We provide a safe space for you to share experiences and feelings with others who have similar experiences. Please contact us for more info or to sign up.
Often children who have experienced family violence need additional help to recover from the affects of abuse. SFVC provides support for children through one-on-one and group time.
