We don’t need to show you the sobering statistics, you know it’s a problem. Women, men, and children in every corner of the world are being abused by the people who are supposed to love them most.
It’s easy to place the blame on government inaction, inadequate funding, violence in the media or other causes that can feel far off and out of our control.
But when it comes down to it, ending abuse starts with one action by one person. And with each person who steps up, the good compounds across the world.
DomesticShelters.org, a service of the nonprofit Theresa's Fund, helps domestic violence survivors throughout the U.S. & Canada. We operate a free website that helps over 2 million survivors a year find relevant and safe help quickly and easily on any device.
Donations will help to fund our searchable domestic violence program database (the only of its kind), educational articles about important domestic violence topics (over 600 published so far) and provide funding to the top shelters and programs.
We also created an easy online way for people to give back to shelters’ wish lists via our online Wish List Program, saving valuable time for both donors and recipients. At no cost to programs on our site, they can choose from thousands of available items, even marking which are urgent. Donors can find participating shelters and donate items with just a few clicks.

Sites like ours can't operate without generous support from donors. Please consider supporting our valuable and lifesaving program so that together we can help even more survivors of domestic violence. One-hundred percent of the money donated goes towards the projects themselves, since the non profit operators of DomesticShelters.org, Theresa's Fund, cover all other administrative costs.
