2020 IN REVIEW

Dear friends,

 

On behalf of A Safe Place, I want to extend my sincerest appreciation for your generous Holiday gifts. Especially during the pandemic and subsequent lockdowns, your support has been essential in providing services to our community. Your generosity has enabled survivors of domestic and intimate partner violence and their children access to emergency shelter, survivor-centered and trauma-informed therapy services, free legal assistance, individualized case-management, and many other vital services and items.

We are consistently amazed and continuously grateful for the enduring support from our
community. We are so appreciative and feel fortunate to be able to share in a community that is committed to supporting those in need. We are blown away by your compassion and investment in the healing of people you may not even know.

 

Thank you so much for your kindness! Your generosity and care keeps us moving forward
toward justice and a world we all look forward to living in.

 

May you stay safe and healthy!
 

Sincerely,
Carolyn Russell, MSW, MA.
Executive Director

HOLIDAY GIVING

For the domestic violence victims who come to A Safe Place, their exposure to violence and abuse is an extremely debilitating health condition, a condition that often leads to death if not appropriately addressed. There is no more critical or pressing health interventions for these victims than the intervention, support, and hope offered by A Safe Place.

 

A Safe Place serves over 200 domestic violence victims every year, and provides education, counseling, and support to thousands more in an effort to prevent future violence. About half of A Safe Place’s funding comes from government sources for approved services, and the other half comes from dedicated individuals and concerned funders and foundations. A Safe Place relies on, and is most appreciative of, this financial support.

Dear Ms. Union,


On behalf of A Safe Place, I want to extend my deepest gratitude for your generous donation. We have seen a devastating rise in domestic violence cases during the pandemic and subsequent lockdowns. Your generosity has directly helped survivors and their children fleeing abusive homes during the pandemic. You have enabled survivors of domestic and intimate partner violence access to emergency shelter, survivor-centered and trauma-informed therapy services, free legal assistance, and many other essential services
and items.


As an organization, we are inspired and moved by your commitment to supporting those who have been institutionally, societally, or
interpersonally abused. We are touched by your fierce compassion and empathy as well as your investment in other’s healing.


We hope that you and your family are staying safe and healthy during this time!
