THE STORY:

Shelter For Help In Emergency wrote -

WORKING TO END DOMESTIC VIOLENCE IN OUR COMMUNITY.


Imagine waking up one day and realizing that your only companion is fear--fear of your partner, fear for your safety and fear for your life. You have no place to go and no one belives you.


This is the reality that victims of domestic violence experience daily. No one deserves to be abused. The Shelter for Help in Emergency provides a place to turn. We offer safety, shelter and hope to victims of domestic violence and their families. 


Since 1979, the Shelter for Help in Emergency has worked to support and empower victims of domestic violence in Planning District Ten (City of Charlottesville, and counties of Albemarle, Fluvanna, Greene, Louisa, and Nelson) through a combination of residential and community-based outreach services including a 24-hour Hotline, emergency shelter, legal advocacy and court accompaniment, supportive counseling, outreach to the Spanish-speaking community, resource assistance, and information and referrals.  Each year, we respond to over 1,200 hotline calls, provide 5,000 nights of safe shelter to more than 200 adults and children, and assist many other victims of domestic violence through our outreach services.     


All services provided by the Shelter are free of charge and confidential.


Your donation will enable us to continue ensuring that victims of domestic violence will continue to have access to the full offering of programs and services the Shelter provides in our community!  


A gift from you would provide:

 

$25 - a backpack and school supplies for a child starting a new year or moving schools.

$75  - one night of safety, food and comfort to a mother and children in our shelter.

$100 - support and advocacy to a victim attending a court hearing.

$250 - one week of support and advocacy to help a child heal from abuse.

$750 - one week of safe shelter to a family, including food, clothing and crisis counseling.

$1,000 - one month of the Shelter’s 24-hour Crisis Hotline costs.

$5,000 - teen dating violence prevention services to area middle and high schools.


Please help us continue the work of our mission to end domestic violence in our community. Your gift, however big or small, will have an impact and ensure that no one at risk is on this journey alone.  Thank you! 


If you or sometone you know is a victim of domestic violence, please call the 24-hour Shelter hotline at (434) 293-8509.
