BENEFITING: True North of Columbia, Inc.
True North of Columbia, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) agency which was founded in 1984 as a rape crisis center and became a domestic violence center soon thereafter. True North is now a comprehensive domestic violence and sexual assault victim services program. Our mission is to provide a safe environment by educating, empowering and advocating for victims of domestic violence and sexual assault. The services provided are designed to empower those who have been battered by an intimate partner or sexually assaulted, enabling the victim to begin the healing process and work towards regaining control of their life.
True North of Columbia provides a safe, emergency shelter offered 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year to victims who are fleeing abusive situations, and also provides a variety of advocacy services, individual counseling, and support groups for victims regardless of whether they are residing in the shelter or not.
Dollars received directly benefit victims of domestic and sexual violence and their children. With your support we can continue to provide services to victims that provide a framework for their recovery from trauma -- tools they will need to rebuild healthy, independent, and safe lives.
