THE STORY:

Dear Friends,

Individually and as families, we have grown from survivors into champions. With the help of Family Shelter Service, we are no longer victims. With your help and the help of the Allstate Purple Purse Campaign and DuPage Foundations, Partners In Philanthropy, we commit ourselves to raising funds and awareness for all those in our community who seek to escape domestic violence.

The video here contains our stories and our voices. Our journeys may be different, but our futures are now free from violence. We want victims of domestic violence who live in our neighborhoods to know that there are laws to protect them and their children, and a network of people who care, like Allstate and DuPage Foundation and that they have a safe place to go when they need it. That is why we will support "Be a Hero for Hope 10K/5K" on October 25th — and we hope you will too. By donating, participating and sharing this information, you too will be involved in changing someones story, from victim to champion.

Please support our team and our mission. 

Donate -  Your donation can be multiplied because Family Shelter Service has been invited to participatein the DuPage Foundation Partners in Philanthropy challenge as well as the Purple Purse Campaign.  Every donation to this page will assist us in receiving additional funds from these two amazing organizations. If you would like to learn more about the DuPage Foundation Partners in Philanthropy program, you can visit their page http://www.dupagefoundation.org/NewsEvents/AnnualBenefit.aspx 

Participate - run, walk, stroll or volunteer visit www.fssevents.org to register or volunteer for Be a Hero for Hope 10K/5K. One in 4 women will be affected by domestic violence in their lifetime. Let's show our community that we will not tolerate domestic violence.

Share -  Share this page with your friends, family and co-workers.It is our mission to make sure that Family Shelter Service is available to help all those who want to journey from survivor to champions. Share this line: https://www.crowdrise.com/familyshelterservice1/fundraiser/fsssurvivors

Thank you for supporting a cause that is not only dear to our hearts but essential to our community.

Family Shelter Service Speakers Bureau, clients, survivors and champions!
