EVENT DATE: Oct 22, 2016
All donations will be put into The Network's Emergency Fund.
Emergency Services Funding: The Network has limited funding to assist victims working with member agencies with emergency services needs such as bus tickets or gas cards to relocate to a safer location, hotel/motel rooms if there is a not a shelter in their area or they are not able to stay in the shelter, replacement of items that are broken during an assault, and other needs that are related to the abuse. To access funding, victims need to contact their nearest member agency for assistance and have no other resources to meet the emergency services need.
The Network is a state-level non-profit agency comprised of caring people dealing with the concerns of domestic violence and sexual assault victims. Our member programs employ and support individuals of all racial, social, religious and economic groups, ages, abilities, and lifestyles. Rural, urban and tribal areas are proudly represented. The Network believes that the abuse of power in society fosters domestic violence, rape, gender inequality, racism, and poverty by perpetuating conditions in which certain groups benefit from the domination of others.
We believe that domestic violence results from the use of force or threat to achieve and maintain control over others in intimate relationships. The Network opposes the use of violence as a means of control over others and supports equality in relationships.
All of our programs and services are rooted firmly in the belief that people victimized by crime have the right to assume power over their own lives by making informed choices regarding their empowerment journey. The Network is dedicated to the empowerment of those victimized by domestic or sexual violence.
Therefore, we are passionate about eliminating personal and societal violence and welcome the help of all people as allies. We believe in a world free of violence and we are committed to turning this dream into a reality. The Network envisions a world free of violence. We are committed to making this dream a reality by diligently working in collaboration with other community allies to advance prevention endeavors and improve response efforts across our state. Networking with other entities in our community creates avenues to impact long-term systemic and social change.
