Hal Herman Children’s Fund

In 2008 the Hal Herman Children’s Fund was established by Lois Herman as a celebration of her husband’s 80th birthday.  The Herman’s have always believed in the importance of helping others and have supported Women In Distress for many years.  “We believe in WID’s mission to end domestic abuse for everyone through intervention, education and advocacy.  Through our commitment, we have learned firsthand just how important it is to help keep families safe, stated Hal.”

Even when children don’t see domestic abuse, they usually know its happening. It can affect them deeply.  More than 50% of women experiencing domestic abuse live in households with children under 12. These children are more likely to exhibit behavioral issues and physical health problems, including depression, anxiety, and violence toward peers.

Through the Hal Herman Children’s Fund (HHCF) and the generosity of donors, the smallest survivors of domestic violence can receive the support they need — supervised care while their parent is in counseling, and help from specialized therapists that use play therapy, art therapy and more to help these children break the cycle of domestic violence.  To learn more about the Hal Herman Children’s Fund and the HHCF Celebration Wall, click here.

Thank you for your interest in supporting the Second Annual Women In Distress Charity Golf Tournament at Coral Ridge Country Club in Fort Lauderdale, FL on Monday, November 9, 2015.  Chaired by Phyllis Thomas (WID Board Chair) and David Sobocinski, we are excited to create an event that is as much fun as it is impactful.

With the anticipation of another sold out event, this tournament provides a wonderful opportunity for you to show your support of a great cause while getting your brand/name/logo in front of business and community leaders from throughout South Florida.

By supporting the Women In Distress Charity Golf Tournament, you will help fund critical, life-saving programs and services such as emergency shelter, crisis intervention, a 24-hour Crisis Hotline, children’s counseling and more; all of which are provided by Women In Distress free-of-charge to families in need. Last year alone, Women In Distress provided over 37,800 safe shelter nights to families escaping domestic abuse situations and answered over 12,000 calls to our 24-hour Crisis Hotline.

Women In Distress is the only nationally accredited, state-certified, full service domestic violence center serving Broward County. We are not only serving those in need, but also taking a proactive approach to eliminate violence in our community.  Last year, over 55,000 youth and adults were educated about violence prevention and the dynamics of domestic violence.

Yet, we can’t do it alone; please join us and support our mission of ending domestic violence abuse for everyone.  We hope you will consider becoming a sponsor of the Women In Distress Charity Golf Tournament.  Together we can end domestic violence and support the courageous women, children and men who have taken that brave first step toward a violence-free future.
