About Us

Pursuing Peace is Robeson County

Southeastern Family Violence Center is a private non-profit organization that depends on support from our community. We offer crisis intervention, shelter, and advocacy services for adult (men & women) as well as child victims of intimate partner violence and/or family violence. 

S.F.V.C. does not discriminate against any person regardless of race, ethnicity, religion, disability, sexual orientation, age, or gender.

Abuse is never an acceptable or healthy way to solve difficulties in relationships, regardless of orientation. All agency services are open for people who identify as lesbian, gay bi-sexual, or transgendered.

Intimate partner/family violence is used to gain power and control over a spouse, girlfriend/boyfriend, former spouse, cohabitant, or family member by assaulting, threatening, or verbally abusing them. Intimate partner/family violence happens to people of all ages, races, religions, sexual orientations, ethnic groups, and income levels.

  • Someone you know has been the victim of Intimate partner/family violence.
  • Someone you know has known the terror of an assault or a threat and has been paralyzed by fear.
  • Someone you know has needed help, but could not get it, needed someone to listen, but no one was there.

We believe Intimate partner/family violence should not only be appropriately responded to but efforts should be made to prevent it from occurring in the first place. Because of this, we offer a batterer’s intervention program that seeks to help perpetrators of abuse change their behavior. We also partner with schools and other community groups to engage and inform young people about dating violence using a program that has been proven effective.
