Public Issues Community Service Programs
Public Issues Community Service Programs continue the GFWC long-standing advocacy and proven historical involvement concerning the specific welfare of women, children and veterans along with the general issues of safety and disaster relief. Working in tandem with organizations that provide direct assistance in these area, our members support the following:
- Smoky Mountain Service Dogs
- Child Advocacy Center
- The Tellico Village Fire Department
GFWC has underscored the need for special support for women in abusive environments and has initiated a Special Project for 2016 – 2018, Domestic Violence Awareness and Prevention. To that aim, we lend support whenever possible to IVAS – Immediate Vital Assistance Services—located in Lenoir City.
