BENEFITING: STAND INC
In October 2014, STAND, Inc. will celebrate 15 years of providing dedicated services to individuals impacted by reenty, substance abuse and domestic violence. It is our goal to host a solutions-based symposium to educate and bring awareness to the community in the specific areas of reentry and domestic violence.
Sadly, domestic violence is a major problem in the World including the United States and most communities. The statistics are startling; in the U.S. a woman is assaulted or beaten every nine seconds, and an estimated 1.3 million women are victims of domestic violence each year. STAND, Incorporated is invested in solutions and to that end our goal is to continue to bring awareness and education around this issue. We host facilitate focus groups inviting victims and perpetrators, but want to broaden out awareness outreach through our 15 year anniversary solution based symposium. Current initiatives resulted in the development of effective interventions and actionable resources. A significant number of individuals who would benefit from access and formal training can’t afford to attend. However, your tax-exempt contribution would help sponsor individuals who are disparately seeking assistance, solutions and resources; before the situation becomes criminal or the chaos and violence becomes the ‘norm’ for the children.
