The FCADV Foundation Purple Purse Fundraiser 2015 - Building a Foundation of HOPE and SAFETY Together!
The Foundation works to ensure that life saving services are available to domestic violence survivors and their children as they rebuild their lives and live free from violence.
Florida’s certified domestic violence centers are the first line of defense to achieving safety and independence by providing a place for survivors and their children to flee their violent homes. Last year, Florida’s 42 certified centers provided 534,369 nights of life saving shelter to those escaping violence. Many fled with children, who represent almost half of those receiving emergency shelter.
Providing Long-Term Stability
While federal, state and local funding plays a crucial role, it is incumbent upon the private sector to be a key partner in our effort to sustain long-term service provision to domestic violence survivors and their children.
The FCADV Foundation, Inc.'s private endowment aims to ensure that direct services for domestic violence survivors and their children are available irrespective of the current fiscal or political climate.
