About Us:

FVRC was founded in 1982 to provide services to battered women and sexual assault victims in Chatham County, North Carolina. The agency has grown to include: offices in Pittsboro and Siler City; emergency shelter for victims and their children; Second Bloom, our thrift boutique; and the Coalition for Family Peace, Chatham County’s coordinated community response to domestic and sexual violence.

 

FVRC serves on average 800 victims per year. School-based prevention programs reach approximately 2,250 Chatham County students each year. Emergency Shelter We believe that domestic violence and sexual assault can only be stopped through a three-pronged approach.

 

  • Intervention: working with victims to promote healing and with perpetrators to promote change. 
  • Advocacy: helping systems work effectively to increase safety for victims and hold perpetrators accountable. 
  • Prevention: creating a community that supports peaceful families and healthy relationships.
