Help us open the Family Peace Center for survivors of domestic and sexual violence.
We are so close to opening the Family Peace Center right in the heart of downtown Rockford, across from the historic Coronado Performing Arts Center! We know that the Coronavirus is affecting everyone, whether directly or indirectly, and survivors of domestic and sexual violence are no exception.
The Family Peace Center is a multi-agency, multi-disciplinary co-located service center that provides services to survivors of interpersonal violence. It focuses on reducing the number of times survivors have to tell their stories and the number of places they have to go for help. Domestic Violence is on the rise as a result of the stay at home order and our coordinated services are needed now more than ever. We are working hard to keep everything on schedule to open this summer -- accommodating social distancing guidelines. The Coronavirus has forced us to cancel three fundraisers that would allow us to open our doors. We need the help of our generous community!
We kindly ask that you join us in preparing the Center to open. Your gift will help provide immediate financial support so we can open our doors and provide coordinated services in one central location to families in need!
