We are a volunteer grassroots group dedicated to assisting women who must leave abusive relationships. This process is dangerous and expensive for women in abusive relationships. Housing is limited, there are more animal shelters than shelters for women and children escaping abuse. Women cannot leave unless they have families who can support them. Countless women do not have this family support. We are requesting these funds to set up a non profit status. Our short term goals are to assist women with emergency legal assistance. Women who escape domestic abuse suffer from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and are unable to navigate the complex Family Court system. Currently, the court system takes advantage of the compromised state of these courageous women and we will assist in advocating for their cause.
