CHALLENGE #19-2021

HOPE HARBOUR Challenge #19 is complete!

Columbus, Georgia

The Columbus Alliance for Battered Women, Inc. (d/b/a Hope Harbour was organized as a non-profit corporation in January, 1979.  The Alliance grew out of a group of concerned citizens, organizations and community leaders who recognized that spousal abuse was a serious community problem.  Two of the most critical needs were temporary shelter for women and children who had no refuge or escape from the explosive environment of a violent home and for appropriate and accessible counseling to deal with the trauma. The children in shelter enjoy a beautiful playroom with new toys and supplies that help create the perfect learning environment during their stay at Hope Harbour.  Staff and children alike love the space.
