Don’t miss this opportunity to add another chapter to Partners’ story and to the story of hundreds of victims and survivors of domestic violence! Donate now and your donation will count for more – a chance for Partners to win $100,000! More money means more help for victims!
The vast majority of domestic violence victims go into court on their own not knowing their rights or the relief to which they are entitled. Partners helps fill this void by providing free legal assistance to low income domestic violence victims seeking final restraining orders and orders for child support. Don’t underestimate the impact that a successful outcome in court can have on the life of a victim! A restraining order can provide safety, and a support award can provide financial security. Both can lay the foundation for empowerment of victims and survivors – a crucial first step in breaking the cycle of violence.
“Your help today has given me the courage to move ahead and hold my head up.”
