This organization provides extremely valuable support for victims of domestic violence, mostly women and young children. The organization has a 24 hr. toll free crisis line, an emergency shelter, and provides counseling, legal assistance, education and many other services to victims. The services are provided by a combination of staff (employees) and volunteers. The staff and volunteers are the best in their field, and work around the clock to provide help to people who are often in a very desperate situation.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

The faces of the victims of emnestic violence. many of these women and children have no other place to go.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The level of energy and enthusiasm of the staff and the volunteers is unbelievable.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

The best in their field. Hard working and always trying to achieve the best results for the clients.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Help more victims and expand emergency shelter operations.
