The Game Changing Men intervention program nurtures a community of people dedicated to ending their use of controlling, harmful, abusive, or violent behavior in intimate partner relationships. The GCM intervention program is certified by the Georgia Commission on Family Violence as a 24-week Family Violence Intervention Program (FVIP) and led by a facilitator with over 20 years of experience with FVIP facilitation.

Classes are offered weekly on Thursday evenings from 6:30 to 8pm. Class participants can expect engaging weekly activities and conversations about intimate partner violence (IPV). Discussion topics include the following topics: the root causes of IPV, responsibility and accountability, healing trauma, the effects of intimate partner violence, and tools for respectful relationships. The class is based on the Men at Work: Building Safe Communities curriculum and enhanced with trauma informed and healing practices.  

Fees for the class are on a sliding scale. Taking Application now for classes! Call now! (404)997-3496

Self-Referrals & Community Initiated Interventions

Sacred Space seeks to intervene early in cases of IPV. Often, tactics of IPV escalate over time. Paired with community based education and prevention programming, like the GCM… , early interventions create safer, more resilient communities and increase the safety of all parties.

 

Too often the choices for intervention feel limited to either calling the police or doing nothing. Our experience has taught us that there are many more safe choices that can be made. 

 

If you are using controlling, abusive, or violent behaviors in an intimate partner relationship, call us to talk about how you can stop those behaviors. 

 

If someone in your community is controlling or harming their intimate partner, please call us to discuss what you may do to help.

 

If someone is harming you, please call (404)997-3496 to talk with an experienced advocate.
