THE STORY:

Domestic violence affects one in four women in her lifetime – that’s more women than breast cancer, ovarian cancer and lung cancer combined. Most people think only of physical abuse when they consider domestic violence, yet financial abuse happens in 98% of all domestic violence cases. 

The number one reason domestic violence survivors stay or return to an abusive relationship is that they don’t have the financial resources to break free. 

Physical abuse leaves bruises and scars. Financial abuse is an Invisible Weapon that traps victims in abusive relationships. 

HopeWorks is Howard County, Maryland’s sexual, dating and domestic violence center.  We hold a vision of a world where all women and girls are safe and everyone is able to live up to their full potential.  To get there, we provide critical services to those impacted by domestic and sexual violence while we fight for the justice and transformation in our communities that can eliminate the root causes of violence.

We are proud of our strong history of supporting survivors as they heal with the specialized care our dedicated staff provides on a daily basis. Critical also to our mission is engaging the entire community in the work of changing the conditions that allow sexual and domestic violence to occur in the first place. This part takes all of us.

Domestic and sexual violence are not inevitable.

Prevention takes an entire community working together – challenging and changing the beliefs, attitudes and culture that allow them to exist. And it takes hope. Hope builds momentum and momentum creates change…when we work together.

Our community can be stronger and better and safer when we are all engaged in this work together. This is the spirit of HopeWorks. We believe our name says as much about us as an agency as it does about us as a community.

We need you with us to reach our vision.
