85% OF YOUR SPONSORSHIP
GOES DIRECTLY TOWARDS
A VICTIM OR A SURVIVOR
48 Hour Escape
$225 (each victim)
Violent crimes committed against a victim of domestic abuse is not their fault. Many victims escape violence with just the clothes on their back in order to save themselves and/or their children. Escaping many times goes without having car, cell phone, even access to money. There are victims who do not have family close by to assist. Our 48 hour escape fund provides the basic necessities and the much needed time to mentally prepare for their next immediate phase which is most of the time, making decisions on a complete uprooting of their entire life. This is a very traumatic time yet decisions must be made quickly.
We request that you sponsor a victim during this crisis. If you cannot fully sponsor a victim, your contribution will be on a cumulative basis until the total amount needed from others is raised for a victim. This fund is provided when we receive notifcation from the local police department and/or another domestic abuse advocacy.
(each survivor for an entire year)
Survivors have gotten through the critical phase and many times a complete uprooting. Following trauma, many survivors feel isolated or do not have health insurance to receive emotional support. Survivors meet in a group once a week with other survivors to share experiences and provide support to each other. $215 is for an entire year of support about $4 per meeting. If you cannot sponsor the full cost for one person, your partial donation will accumulate until the full cost is reached.
Support 25 victims in their 48 hour crisis a year.
Support 30 Survivors for ongoing support groups a year
