Our Mission

“Giving Voice and Support to Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault Victims.”

Our Vision

We honor families as the life of our community – where dreams are born, children are nurtured and adults find purpose. Because many members of our community who are victims of domestic violence and sexual assault are denied these rights to quality of life and to basic human dignity, Families Living Violence Free is dedicated to empowering Granville County families to live safe, non-violent lives.
Families Living Violence Free is Granville County’s domestic violence and rape crisis center. Incorporated as a 501(c)(3) in 2004, we are certified by the Governor’s Crime Commission and the North Carolina Council for Women/Domestic Violence Commission and the designated Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault service provider to victims in our county.

Organizational Overview: Families Living Violence Free is governed by a Board of Directors which is actively engaged in determining our strategic direction, defining our goals and objectives as related to our mission, and evaluating the success of our services toward achieving our mission. The board also ensures that our resources are managed effectively with proper financial controls in place to remain accountable to our donors and the public.
All of our services are at will, free and confidential, Families Living Violence Free provides services regardless of immigration status, age, physical or mental ability, gender identity or expression, race, creed, sexual orientation, or religious orientation.
