The Gulf Coast Center for
Nonviolence has been serving victims
of domestic violence since 1977. As the agency
grew in size and reach, so have the services that meet physical abuse and emotional, legal, and financial needs. The Center celebrated its
40th anniversary in 2017 by dropping “Women’s” from its name and formally embracing the inclusion that has always been a part of its mission.
The Center’s Domestic Violence Program offers a crisis line, two emergency shelters in Harrison and Jackson counties, housing programs, crisis intervention services, counseling, civil legal services, case management, and court advocacy.
The Criminal Justice Program provides support and assistance to victims of domestic violence or sexual assault who are involved in criminal proceedings through court advocacy, counseling and case management.
