BENEFITING: NEW BEGINNINGS
Imagine that you could help a survivor of domestic violence gain freedom by removing one of the barriers to independence: a deposit on an apartment, English as a Second Language classes, basic car repairs, uniforms for work, assistance with tuition, fees for legal documents, bus tickets, and so much more.
When Juliet came to our Shelter motivated to get a place of her own, she was stuck. She had signed for a loan on a car that her abusive husband drove - she didn't even have a license - and he hadn't made a payment in months. New Beginnings paid off this small debt, freeing Juliet from this barrier to independence. She moved into her own apartment a month later.
The Freedom Fund helps survivors working toward safety and independence and can make the difference between hopelessness and a lifetime of liberation from abuse.
