Why? Because it is going to take each and every member of our community to change the way we view domestic violence and stop it. This event raises much-needed funding for the YWCA's Becky's House® Domestic Violence Program. All of the services provided by Becky's House® support the individual's journey from victim to survivor to achiever. The program includes a 30-60 day domestic violence emergency shelter, a 24-hour emergency hotline, and four transitional housing programs for survivors of domestic violence and their families. Becky's House® serves more than 500 women and children, and receives nearly 2,500 hotline calls each year!
