Mission Statement

Families First's mission is to identify, address, and rectify issues related to domestic violence and sexual assault in Columbus and Bladen Counties.

Description

Families First is a non-profit agency helping families facing domestic violence and sexual assault. It was incorporated in 1995.

At the time there was no domestic violence or sexual assault service in this area, yet the need for these services was urgent and documented by a variety of agencies and professionals. Concerned citizens gathered in January that year to work toward a solution.

By December, Families First began direct services. By early 1996, Columbus County Commissioners approved leasing a county building for use as a shelter. In 2002, Families First opened a a satellite office in Elizabethtown for victims of domestic violence.
