In celebration of Domestic Violence Awareness Month, please consider supporting our work by donating to ODVN’s LifeSaver Fund.
Every penny we raise will be used to provide emergency and legal assistance to survivors and their children.
We feel an extra sense of urgency about our fundraiser this year.
Last month ODVN learned that our most important funding source – our Victims of Crime Act (VOCA) grant – will be cut substantially. As you may have seen from media reports, ODVN’s grant will be cut by nearly 41%. That means the number of families who receive assistance through our Relocation and Legal Assistance programs will be cut by more than a third. Last year those programs served 1,220 survivors and 739 children.
If you can’t make a donation, please help spread the word. It’s as easy as “liking” the ODVN page on Facebook or following @OhioDVN on Twitter. See the buttons below to share.
I appreciate anything you can do to help!
