How We Can Help
Our Vision: To keep women and children safe and to show them that there is a better life after abuse or homelessness; to ensure that no mother and child will have to sleep on the floor or on the ground, that they won’t become separated throughout difficult times.
Fact: “Approximately 1.3 million women are physically assaulted on an annual basis in the United States by an intimate partner.” Source: Patricia Tjaden & Nancy Thoennes, U.S. Department of Justice, NCJ 183781, Full Report of the Prevalence, Incidence, and Consequences of Intimate Partner Violence Against Women: Findings from the National Violence Against Women Survey, at iv (2000), available at http://www.ojp.usdoj.gov/nij/pubs-sum/183781.htm.
As an outreach program, our goal is to give hope back to victims of domestic abuse; hope about life after abuse and to provide homeless women a safe and warm environment for them and their children. Abused women making the transition of moving from a shelter into their own home can be a difficult time. Even though they’re in a safer environment, some of them may contemplate returning to an abusive household because their new accommodations seem so sparse. But moving into a place that feels like a real home that is filled with furniture and colorful decorations will give them a deeper sense of security. It gives them the security to believe in new beginnings and to realize they can live a life without abuse and without having to live on the streets.
