About liveSAFE Resources2017-01-25T13:48:21-04:00

Founded in 1917, liveSAFE Resources (formerly the YWCA of Northwest Georgia) is committed to providing safety and healing to those impacted by domestic violence, sexual assault and elder abuse within our community. We provide emergency shelter, transitional housing, counseling, legal advocacy, a 24-hour crisis line and many other services to empower those we serve to rebuild their lives. By raising awareness and fostering support, liveSAFE Resources is dedicated to building a community free from domestic violence, sexual assault and elder abuse.

Leading the Way

  • In 1978 we became the first organization to open a domestic violence shelter in the State of Georgia and are currently one of only five dual centers across the state to serve both domestic violence and sexual assault victims.
  • We are the WellStar Regional Protection Center for sexual assault in Cobb, Paulding and Cherokee counties, offering 24/7 access to forensic medical exams and advocacy at no cost to the victim.
