The Alma G. Davis Foundation’s mission is to “Educate, Empower and Celebrate survivors of domestic violence and help them achieve economic and self-sufficiency”.
Our long-term vision is to aid in the eradication of domestic violence globally and enlighten the public about its effects.
Who We Are
The Alma G. Davis Foundation was founded in 2005 and is headquartered in Atlanta, GA. Founded by Alma G. Davis as a result of her own personal trials and triumphs with domestic violence, the foundation strives to ensure that women and young girls break the vicious cycle of abuse that is constantly on the rise.
“Having received my own 1st set of black eyes at the tender age of 14, I felt it was only right to reach back and grab those that are pushing their way forward”, says Davis. Now a successful and respected business woman and community leader, Davis has made it her passion and privilege to uplift women and teens that are survivors.
Due to the alarming statistics of “1 in 4 women and 1 in 7 men (aged 18+) in the U.S. has experienced domestic violence in their lifetime, and “1.5 million high school students nationwide experience physical abuse from a dating partner in a single year”, we utilize this platform to embrace, educate, encourage and celebrate those that are having the courage to say “no more” and are trying to rebuild their lives. This is an important initiative to our community, as we must all do our part in wrapping our arms around these women and young girls and continue to encourage them to move forward with positive, healthy lifestyles. Please join us in making our efforts a success,” says Alma G. Davis.

How We Do It
By utilizing our corporate and community partners to help us provide health and wellness, training, job assistance and other services, to date we have been able to positively affect thousands of victim’s lives. This has resulted in the documented success and sustainable transition of survivors out of domestic violence shelters and situations.
With a core of dedicated staff and volunteers, we have been able to create sustainable programs that support domestic violence victims. Due to the high volume of need and limited available resources for survivors, we are always in need of additional funding in order to maintain our current high-demand programs.
