Hospitality House for Women, Inc. began with a small group of committed citizens who recognized the emergent needs of domestic violence victims. To address this community problem, our doors opened in 1978 as one of the first domestic violence shelters in Georgia. Originally, shelter and services were limited to space that would accommodate 5 people for up to 7 days. Now the agency is certified by the Department of Human Services and is able to accommodate 27 people for up to 90 days. We continually adapt to changes in our field in order to achieve better outcomes for victims and survivors. To accomplish this we encourage freedom of self-definition for the individuals we serve, providing programming that is empowerment-based and victim-focused to assist them in charting their own course for developing goals.
Hospitality House for Women, Inc. strives to provide the highest quality of care, free of charge, to child and adult survivors of domestic violence and dating violence in Floyd County. Our 27 bed, facility is the service-hub from which we provide victims with emergency food, clothing, and shelter. Additionally, advocates provide supportive services which are important to empower families to become safe and self- sufficient. Often, the services we provide to non-residential victims prevent these families from becoming homeless due to issues which stem from domestic violence. To assist in achieving results, we partner with community systems such as law enforcement, the courts, medical professionals, schools, and local service agencies to advocate for victim safety and justice.
