THE STORY:

The staff of Family Shelter Service is committed to providing hope and help to those affected by domestic abuse.  We are fundraising during Domestic Violence Awareness Month to raise awareness in the community and contribute to the important work we do every day.  Through Allstate’s Purple Purse campaign, a wide range of people can come together for a greater purpose.

The mission of Family Shelter Service is a difficult one. Domestic violence is a difficult issue to discuss. We all have ideas on how the dynamics of a family should be. We all know that no family is perfect and family conflict is a part of life. But it’s safe to say that we all agree on one thing; that at the end of the day, when we think of family it should make us feel safe.

Unfortunately, that is not the case for many. About 11% of children are exposed to psychological or physical violence from a parent. For women, 1 in 3 experienced some sort of violence from a partner or spouse. Even if it’s not happening to you, it is happening to someone you know  - a family member, a relative or neighbor.

Here at Family Shelter Service each employee has their unique strengths that allow us to work as a powerful force, helping families in need. Some are good listeners. Some are organizers. Some are the comic relief and some provide the words of wisdom.  We work together as a family to help others reach a place of safety and hope.

Your donation can make such a difference.  As little as $10 can provide materials for a child to participate in our Mom & Kids group.  Please take a moment to donate today.

Thank you for your support!
