87 cents of every dollar raised directly supports survivor programs and essential services.

With each contribution, families are touched, hope is given, and lives are saved. The need for domestic violence services is ever-growing, and it’s your support that makes a world of difference. Your generosity fuels a journey of healing and hope. We not only offer a secure haven for survivors and their children but extend critical services like counseling, therapy, and vital assistance in finding housing, childcare, and employment opportunities.

Every gift you share has the power to reshape lives, inspire a brighter future, and help survivors reclaim their power.
