THE STORY:

Domestic violence has long-term physical, emotional, and financial implications for victims and their families and it is a crime that knows no boundaries. It crosses all racial, social, and economic lines, affecting women, men, and children from all communities. It affects 1 in 4 women and 1 in 7 men.

Last year the National Network to End Domestic Violence collected information from 52 programs across Massachusetts during a 24 hour period. Their survey showed that a staggering 1,970 victims were served in one day. Of that, 742 found refuge in emergency shelters and 1,228 received counseling, legal advocacy, and other support. Locally, the issue of domestic violence is significant in the Greater Brockton region, where we are the only provider of critical services, including our emergency shelter, Penelope's Place.

In response to the need, Health Imperatives offers a comprehensive and coordinated suite of services for survivors of violence including emergency shelter, crisis counseling, legal advocacy, financial and career training, and education and prevention. Most recently, we instituted a financial empowerment program for survivors at our domestic violence shelter, recognizing the key role that financial independence plays in establishing a healthy, safe future.

Through all of these initiatives we serve nearly 2,000 people a year, including 52 families who are sheltered at Penelope's Place; however, we could not have achieved these results without your support. Together we can continue to transform our shelter to emphasize economic independence, encourage survivors’ health and wellness, and connect families to vital community supports.

Together we can provide help, hope, and opportunity to families and children who are struggling with the devastating effects of domesitc violence. Thank you for your support.
