Taking the national statistic that 1 in 3 women and 1 in 4 men have been victims of some form of physical violence by an intimate partner within their lifetime and applying that to the over 166,000 residents in Licking County Ohio, we get over 41,000 victims of violence just in our county! The Center for New Beginnings domestic violence shelter has served victims of violence since 1983.
Our goal isn't just to give shelter to victims, but to go out into our community to educate, assist, and prevent this epidemic. We strive every day to be a voice of hope for individuals experiencing violence in Licking County.
Our fundraiser is a simple one. Every PENNY we receive will go to serving the survivors. Whether it's through crisis housing, assistance with civil protection orders, or supporting victims of human trafficking; a donation as small as a PENNY, when added together, can create meaningful change.
