BENEFITING: Retreat, Inc.
ORGANIZER: Retreat, Inc.
I started work at The Retreat in the spring of 2013 as a community outreach coordinator. In my time here I have felt the overwhelming support of our community for our cause; to break the cycle of family violence. In working as a intern in our counseling department, I was given the unique perspective of seeing how our clients, survivors of domestic violence, can heal and be given the gift of hope. It is because of my work both in the community and with our clients that I am driven to help raise much-needed funds for our programs which are FREE to all of our clients.
Our programs include a residential shelter for women and children, a 24-hour domestic violence hotline, individual and group counseling, legal advocacy for all survivors of domestic violence, programs to engage troubled fathers and other men who may be at-risk of committing family violence, and an in-school violence prevention education program taught in local area schools.
If you would, please consider making a donation (no donation is too small) to this worthy cause. Our goal as a team is to raise $10,000.00 and my personal goal is to raise $100.00 All donations are tax deductible as permitted by law.
