Our Guiding Principles

Center for Domestic Peace's mission statement is to end interpersonal violence in the community through prevention, intervention, and educational services.

Center for Domestic Peace (CDP) is in a collaborative partnership with REACH of Macon County to provide services to those experiencing domestic violence in Jackson County. REACH of Macon also provides services for victims of sexual assault .
 

What Is Domestic Violence?

Domestic violence is often described as violence against an intimate partner, sexual assault, or stalking.  The violence can take many forms such as physical, emotional, psychological, sexual, or economic.  It can also include threats of violence to a family member, pet, or even threats of self harm. These types of violent actions can create feelings of intimidation, depression, fear, or terror in the victims. Abusive behavior like this can continue for extended periods of time, even years.

Center for Domestic Peace relies on the support of our community members to help us ensure we are able to provide the best services possible for our clients. If you are interested in supporting our efforts by volunteering your time, please contact our office at (828) 586-8969.
