Challenge #5 has arrived
April 04, 2017
FRIENDS, Inc. is participating in the second national NO MORE Fundraising Challenge sponsored by Verizon. Our goal is to raise much-needed funds to support victims of domestic violence and sexual assault.
Serving Washington County for almost 40 years, Friends has provided emergency shelter and support services to 30,395 individuals over the past five years. Our services include emergency shelter, advocacy, support groups, art therapy, legal services, prevention education, transitional living support, and a 24-hour crisis line. All of our services are confidential and free of charge.
To quote a survivor of domestic violence, “Without the nonjudgmental guidance and support from Friends, I don’t think I would have brought my children to shelter. I don’t think I would have thought about a different future for myself. I think my children and I would still be walking on egg shells and living like prisoners of war.”
Your generous donations will help us continue serving those who suffer at the hands of domestic violence and sexual assault. Thank you!
