Home is not always a safe place. And now with this pandemic, this has become more obvious. More and more people are reaching out for help on our hotline, chatline, and anyway they can. Think about it:the same lock down that keeps us safe actually puts domestic and sexual violence victims—the vast majority of whom are women, children, and LGBTQ+ individuals—at greater risk.
Fortunately, we have been gifted a $10,000 match from a generous and understanding donor to support those calling out for help. Will you please give $25, $50, $100 or more today? When you do, your donation is matched dollar-for-dollar and becomes $50, $100, $200. Please help us raise $20,000.
Think about the child who can usually rely on her teacher to keep an eye on her, now facing school closures or a reduction of in-school days.
Think about the woman whose batterer has lost his job and is now at home, and the tension brought to bear when bills go unpaid.
Think about the gay boy whose only solace is the high school counselor who listens.
