BENEFITING: THE SPRING OF TAMPA BAY INC
Please help us to furnish two rooms for our 28 bed shelter expansion project. By helping us to furnish two rooms YOU are giving 12 victims of domestic violence safety, shelter, and assistance.
The Spring of Tampa Bay is the largest Domestic Violence Center in Tampa, FL and has provided sanctuary and services to more than 60,000 abused adults and their children since its founding in 1977.
Many victims of domestic violence come to The Spring with nothing but fear and apprehension. In most cases these victims have just left their abuser and feel as though they have no safe place to go. This is a sad reality for many adults and it is common for these victims to feel alone, confused and all too often frightened to leave their abuser, but there is a solution.
The Spring is here to listen to these victims, to take their fears seriously and provide the support they need to change the course of their lives. We help to protect these victims by providing a 24-hour hotline, safety planning, support groups, educational counseling and advocacy, transitional housing, legal services and above all - emergency shelter - but we can't do it alone.
In order to meet the needs of our victims we are undergoing a 28 bed shelter expansion project and needs $8,000 to furnish the last TWO ROOM which will give 12 victims shelter and assistance as they work to break the cycle of abuse.
WHERE THE MONEY WILL GO
- All funds will go to furnish two rooms for the shelter expansion project; Each room sleeps 6 adults, giving 12 victims of abuse a place to live until they find permanent refuge from their abuser.
- Funds will pay for 6 bunk beds - 3 per room - and 4 dressers - 2 per room.
Each year The Spring assists hundreds of abused adults and their children turn their lives around to set them on a path to a brighter future.
