About The Children’s Center for Hope & Healing
The Children’s Center for Hope & Healing (formerly the Family Relations Program) is dedicated to stopping the cycle of child sexual abuse and to preventing the exploitation of children. For twenty-six years, we’ve served northeast Georgia by providing counseling, education, and advocacy for those whose lives have been affected by sexual abuse through our four programs: Victims’ Services, Project Pathfinder, Women’s Services, and Prevention Services. All of our services are free or, in the case of Project Pathfinder and our Psychosexual Evaluations, are low-cost. Any one can make a referral or request services. You do not have to have DFCS involvement to receive services. If you or a loved one has experienced sexual abuse, call 770.532.6530 to get help.
