It costs an average of $685 a day to operate the NOA shelter, that’s $250,000 a year!

In 2019, NOA offered emergency shelter and support services such as counseling and financial assistance to over 1,140 victims of domestic violence residing in Dawson and Lumpkin Counties.

Advocates responded to 3,508 crisis calls.

All services are FREE and CONFIDENTIAL to victims in need.

Sustainability ensures that those in need will receive a warm meal, a friendly face and a safe place to rest their head.
