BENEFITING: Wichita Family Crisis Center
YWCA Wichita wrote -
“I struggled to breath and I could not scream, but you could hear screams. You could hear the screams of my daughter begging daddy to leave mommy alone. That moment changed my life forever. I remember thinking…if I survive we have to leave.”
The Women’s Crisis Center serves more than 1,200 women and children each year that are fleeing their homes in search of safety. Statistics tell us that many more women are facing this violent crime. In fact, one in four women will experience domestic violence in her lifetime – that’s more than breast cancer, ovarian cancer and lung cancer combined.
Statistics are staggering, but you can make a difference! Let's show the nation that Wichita, Kansas is taking a stand against domestic violence. Help us raise the most funds and win $100,000 to support the Women’s Crisis Center.
“They did more than help. I believe they saved my life. Thanks to the Women’s Crisis Center, Lilly and I no longer live in constant fear.” – Carla, Survivor
Please donate, or join our team. Help us make sure that women, like Carla, have the resources necessary to escape the abuse and rebuild their lives. No amount it too small to show that you are taking a stand against domestic violence in our community.
