Hal Herman Children’s Fund

In honor of Hal’s 80th birthday, his wife Lois Herman, established the Hal Herman Children’s Fund at Women In Distress to help children who live in a domestic violence environment. More than 50% of women who are victims of domestic violence live in households with children under 12. Children who witness this abuse are more likely to exhibit behavioral issues and physical health problems, including depression, anxiety, and violence toward peers. 

Recognize life’s moments with a unique, permanent gift while giving hope to families and children affected by domestic violence.  Make a donation in honor of a family member, friend, or loved one and they will be recognized on a special Celebration Wall at the Women In Distress Family Center.
