BENEFITING: Bay Area Womens Center
EVENT DATE: Jul 11, 2017
The mission of the Bay Area Women’s Center is to eliminate domestic violence and sexual assault. The Bay Area Women's Center is a non-profit organization in Bay County, Michigan offering shelter, counseling, advocacy, and other crisis services for victims of domestic and sexual violence in our community. Each year the center serves approximately 1,000 women, men, and children with all services being free of charge.
In the past year we've taken 1,212 crisis phone calls, provided shelter for 165 adults and 143 children, conducted 61 sexual assault forensics exams and provided over 2,833 hours of counseling.
Statistics show the presence of safe-houses and shelters has significantly reduced the number of domestic violence related homicides.
It's thanks to donors like you and our community support that we are able to provide a safe and comforting place for survivors of domestic and sexual violence.
