BENEFITING: ALLIANCE FOR COMMUNITY TRANSFORMATIONS
Domestic Violence affects 1 in 4 womennationally, and in Merced County 1 in 3 families. When a survivor is experiencing domestic violence 98% of the time they are also experiencing financial abuse, which creates a barrier for a survivor to leave. Valley Crisis Center, and their advocates, have dedicated themselves to supporting survivors and their families to gain their freedom from all types of violence. Our agency is a nonprofit agency and our services are completely free to all. We offer support with restraining orders, court accompaniment, individual counseling, group counseling, transportation for medical services, emergency safe house and a 24-HR hotline.If you donate online, you will have the opportunity to leave a message of hope along with your $10 minimum monetary contribution. If you would like to donate through particular advocate, your donation of $10 or more will receive a gift of a Purple Purse Tassel with a survivor’s story of hope and empowerment (while supplies last). Valley Crisis Center will be awarding the purple purse designed by tennis champion Serena Williams to the individual who makes the biggest donation by October 27th! All donations received will directly benefit members of Merced County. We appreciate the opportunity to work with you.Our agency hopes to help our survivors regain their independence and live healthy lives free from all forms of violence. Your gift is also tax-deductible; a donation receipt will be sent to you at the end of the campaign (EIN 77-0272319).
