BENEFITING: Shelter For Help In Emergency
ORGANIZER: Shelter For Help In Emergency
As a survivor of intimate partner violence and sexual assault, the mission of the Shelter holds special meaning to me. The way I was able to get through both situations and move towards a path of healing was by having people to reach out to for help, and knowing that others had been through the same situations, and came out on the other side as survivors.
1 in 4 women will experience intimate partner violence in her lifetime. I'm raising money because I want them to have all the same resources and opportunites that I had. I want to educate the community to prevent intimate partner violence from happening in the future. I want for support and peace to be able to replace fear and violence for the women who are going through what so many of us have already been through.
ANYTHING you can give helps. And if you're able to give AND share this with even one friend, we can make it so the Shelter can continue offering critical servies until one day they are no longer needed.
