If you need support . . .

The holidays can be stressful for everyone, but staying physically and emotionally safe during holiday events can be especially difficult for those in abusive relationships. Women's Resource Center operates a 24-hour hotline (which will be in operation on all holidays) that you or someone you know can call if you need to plan for your safety, ask questions about services or your legal options, or just talk to someone confidentially about your feelings and what you are experiencing at home. We also offer two free, confidential support groups each week at our Decatur office where women come to receive support from other women like them. You can get more information about our support groups by calling our hotline at (404) 688-9436.

May you enjoy a happy holiday and a new year of domestic peace.

I was just spending a quiet Sunday morning with my coffee and newspaper, feeling peaceful. Until I read the story of a woman-- battered hideously-- who died of her injuries and whose partner may now be charged with murder.
There but for the grace of God go I, and so many others!
Please keep up the crucial and life-saving work that you do at the WRC. I will continue to sing your praises and to provide support in any way possible. I cannot stress enough my gratitude for the immediate assistance, support and direction I received from the Women's Resource Center when needed.
Happy New Year to you all, and to those you serve.
