BENEFITING: Center Against Domestic Violence
EVENT DATE: Nov 29, 2016
When adults enter our emergency domestic violence shelters, it is our priority to respect the client’s starting point. Basic human psychological needs are Safety, Trust, Independence, Power, Esteem, & Intimacy. Violence inflicted by loved ones causes hazardous and detrimental trauma to victims. We listen to victims, learn where they are coming from and help them rebuild their lives. Funds continue our life-saving programs; sheltering nearly 1,000 adults and children per year, the Center has transformed lives for 40 years. Our goal of $10,000 pays for 100 days in the shelter for a family.
