Mecklenburg County's Community Support Services Women's Commission Adult Services work with a number of community groups and services including:
Work First Family Violence Option
Is violence keeping you from working? If so, the Work First Family Violence Option may be able to help.
What can WFFVO do for you:
- Stop your 24-month time clock temporarily
- Waive your requirements to complete 35 hours per week of work or work related activities temporarily
- Allow you to keep information about the other parent of your child(ren) private in the case that it would put you in danger
All information about the abuse is confidential and will not affect your Work First check.
For more information about Work First Family Violence Option contact your DSS worker or call 704-353-1688.
Domestic Violence Speakers Bureau
Safe Alliance domestic violence programs and Mecklenburg County's CSS Women's Commission join forces in a collaborative effort to reach a wider audience by forming the Domestic Violence Speakers Bureau. The hope and goal is to reach more of the community by sharing resources and eliminating duplicate efforts.
Call 704-432-1568 for more information.
