BENEFITING: HOUSE OF RUTH INC
ORGANIZER: HOUSE OF RUTH INC
To my Family and Friends,
This year I am privileged to serve as the House of Ruth Board President. This organization does so much to support women, and their children, seeking a life free from abuse. We all have known someone affected by this, either by knowledge, speculation or maybe it was hidden from you - so this cause is especially close to my heart. Today, I am asking you to join me in supporting the House of Ruth, the women it serves, and the children and families it benefits. If you tell 10 friends, who tell 10 friends, who then tell 10 friends, we can quickly meet our goal to raise $100,000.00 by October 3rd, with your generous support. All it would take is a donation of $10.00 and an email soliciting 10 friends to do the same. So, I am challenging you to give $10 (or more, it's for an amazing cause) and enlist 10 of your friends to give $10 or give a donation of $100 (or more, if you are feeling especially generous). Anything and everything you are able to do is truly appreciated. Please, I invite you to read more about this incredible organization and the work that we do, I included information below and I encourage you to visit our website at http://houseofruthinc.org. Thank you so much for your generous support.
House of Ruth’s mission is two-fold: (1) To advocate for and assist women and children victimized by domestic violence and children exposed to violence in transforming their lives by providing culturally competent shelter, programs, opportunities, and education; and (2) To contribute to social change through intervention, education, prevention programs and community awareness.
All of the services House of Ruth provides to individuals affected by domestic violence, are free of charge. In order to continue to meet the demand for services, we would like to raise$100,000. These funds will be used to support our exisiting programs that include our 3 core programs: Residential Shelter, Community Outreach, and Counseling. Within these core programs we offer a 24-hour crisis line, emergency and transitional shelter, individual counseling, group counseling, children’s programs, counseling for children of domestic violence victims, an outreach office, community education, legal assistance with Temporary Restraining Orders, emergency food and clothing; emergency response to calls from law enforcement and hospital emergency rooms, emergency transportation to shelter and other safe locations, and legal and social services advocacy.
I am so passionate about the work that House of Ruth continues to do each and everyday, providing assistance to survivors of domestic violence, their children and their families. Thank you for being in my circle of family and friends and for joining me in supporting this incredible cause. You are helping us reach our goal and continue to serve our community. Thank you so much for giving generously, you are touching so many lives.
