On November 6, 2017, the Tifton Judicial Circuit Shelter, Inc. (dba Ruth’s Cottage and The Patticake House) initiated a capital campaign to raise funds for the completion of a new facility. This larger facility will house the Domestic Violence Prevention Program (Emergency Shelter), the Sexual Assault Advocacy program, and the administrative offices for Ruth’s Cottage and The Patticake House. The emergency shelter portion of the facility will allow us to house 24 individuals (compared to 12 currently) as well as offer 3 apartments to accommodate male and handicapped survivors, along with survivors with multiple children.
This facility cannot be constructed without the help of our individual and community partners.
Please join us to make a life changing...lifesaving...project come to fruition.
