Founded in 1990, recognized by the IRS as a 501(c)3 nonprofit in 1991, “Welcome House” became the only program in our community solely dedicated to addressing the issues surrounding domestic violence. Now in its 25th year, Community Welcome House is a Resource Center to help support victims of domestic violence in Coweta County.
To inspire hope and empower survivors of domestic violence.
We seek to facilitate a permanent change by creating opportunities to recognize and remove the barriers which have previously prevented women from becoming individually successful, thus making it possible for women to heal from their past experiences and successfully embrace their future challenges.

[They] provided us transportation and helped me enroll my children in their schools and gave them school supplies. Computers are offered to the kids to help them do their homework and projects. Recreational activities such as swimming and picnic in the park were also being provided. They assisted me in filing a TPO against my abuser. My case manager worked with me in completing all the required documents for applying for VAWA (Violence Against Women Act). They contacted an organization who helped me apply for self-petition in the immigration.
Aside from legal help, they provided spiritual counseling, support groups and family therapies for me and my kids. Being in the program helped us heal emotionally and regain our confidence.
They helped me with my initial deposit when I rented a house and gave us furniture, appliances, and kitchen wares to start with. Even though we are living on or own now, they still checks on us from time to time and offers help.
I can’t imagine what would have happened to me and my children without their untiring support and compassion. From the administration down to the staff, we will be forever grateful…they made us feel so loved. We found new hope."
