Get to Know NOA

In 1986, a group of concerned citizens established the 24/7 crisis line for victims of domestic violence.  Their concerted efforts later lead to the opening of the emergency shelter in 1992. 

Since then, NOA has been providing emergency shelter and a vast array of support services such as trauma counseling, legal advocacy, financial assistance, children’s groups and life skills classes, to name a few.

Each year NOA serves an average of 2,000 clients.  In 2022, NOA served 2,086 clients and responded to 3,463 crisis calls and sheltered 107 men, women and children in our shelter and local motels.

The need for NOA services remains strong as we are the only program in Dawson and Lumpkin County that provides services to this vulnerable population.
