Originally founded in 1986 as a crisis hotline, CODA recognized the need for expanded services.
CODA's mission is to prevent domestic violence through care and education of individuals and families of Beaufort, Colleton, Hampton and Jasper counties in South Carolina.
All services are confidential and free of charge and are offered to those staying at the shelter and on an outreach basis.
“We will provide safety, hope and healing to survivors of child abuse, domestic violence and sexual assault through evidence-based practices and lead in ending abuse through primary prevention and education. ”
