Why Attend An Event?

The funds raised at our special events help us provide life saving services to our clients. Without the generosity and support of our donors, we would not be able to offer critical services to those impacted by domestic violence such as: our  24-Hour Helpline, residential programs, counseling services, abuse intervention programs, and community education services.
