BENEFITING: Genesis Women's Shelter & Support
Genesis Women's Shelter & Support opened its doors in 1985 in Dallas, Texas, as a shelter for women and children escaping violent homes. Since then, Genesis has grown to become a full-service domestic violence recovery program committed to ending the epidemic of domestic violence one family at a time.
When a woman makes the brave decision to leave an abusive relationship, she often becomes homeless and penniless in an instant. It is our goal to remove every roadblock she might face on her journey to an abuse-free life, including finances.
