Vaccination Policy:

As is everyone else, WRC is working through the covid-19 pandemic. Our goal is to keep everyone, no matter how they are connected with us, safe. As a result, we will be implementing a mandatory vaccine policy for all WRC staff and volunteers who work in any of our facilities, including the safe house. Effective November 15, 2021, all WRC staff and volunteers who work in any of our facilities will be required to show proof they have been fully vaccinated (as defined by the CDC and FDA). In general, people are currently considered fully vaccinated: 2 weeks after their second dose in a 2-dose series, such as the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines, or 2 weeks after a single-dose vaccine, such as Johnson & Johnson's Janssen vaccine. Covid-19 testing may not be used in lieu of the vaccine. 

Company

Women's Resource Center to End Domestic Violence strives to meet the immediate and long-term needs of the diverse community of battered women and their children with programs that promote safety, compassion, connection, advocacy, and prevention. Each day we help survivors of domestic violence in Atlanta improve their safety by finding a safe place to stay, exercising their legal rights, exploring options and creating accountability for batterers. We greet women with compassion – no judgment, no second-guessing, and no shame. We provide connection - through relationships built with our staff, support groups and bonds forged with fellow safe house residents. By linking women with community supports and offering our services, we make sure no one has to take this walk alone. Equally importantly, we provide a voice for survivors when they cannot speak for themselves and a platform for those who can speak to be heard. Our advocacy for survivors of domestic violence works to change the culture that allows abuse to thrive.  That advocacy, coupled with our powerful work with children, facilitates prevention and ending domestic violence altogether.
