Domestic violence is a widespread problem in Georgia and across the country, including in Walton and surrounding counties. Project Renewal, serving Walton, Newton and Rockdale counties, is an invaluable resource for women, and men, caught in what a very difficult situation. Project ReNeWal officially opened its doors on November 13, 1995 as the first tri-county shelter for victims of domestic violence serving the three counties. While it does get a lot of support from the local community, raising funds to support the program is a very necessary function of the organization, which is why an event such as Dancing with the Stars for Project Renewal is so valuable. The $62,000 plus goes a long way to helping provide the resources to those in the community in desperate need.
