As many of you know, I recently joined the Ohio Domestic Violence Network (ODVN) as their Training Coordinator. ODVN is a statewide coalition, representing 67 local domestic violence programs. For over 25 years, ODVN has served as our Ohio’s leading voice in strengthening the State’s response to domestic violence survivors through services, training, education, awareness and policy advocacy.
I am writing to you now because I need your help. ODVN is launching our first on-line fundraiser to recognize important women in our lives in a meaningful way and at the same time support survivors of domestic violence. In honor of all the phenomenal women I know, my mother, sister, nieces, goddaughters, mother-in-law, daughters-in-law, granddaughter, aunts, cousins, besties, colleagues, and teachers who have touched my life, as well as all survivors, I am raising funds for this very worthy movement.
We know that one-third of all women in Ohio will be a victim of physical violence, stalking or rape in their life time. The stark reality is that every day in Ohio women are abused. Every day Ohio’s domestic violence programs serve an average of 2,000 women and children. And every day the Ohio Domestic Violence Network makes a positive difference.
Please take the time to make a donation to honor the important women in your life. ANY amount is appreciated and needed. Supporting ODVN is quick, easy and secure through Crowdrise.
Your gift can provide funds for:
Survivors matched saving plans designed to secure her economic independence;
-Training for domestic violence advocates increasing their capacity to provide trauma informed services to survivors;
-Education for advocates and community members to learn how to stop domestic violence in the first place;
-Legal services for protection orders, housing, employment, immigration and other civil legal needs.
-Brochures for survivors on topics such as legal options, safety planning, and technology safety.
