WOMEN'S COALITION OF ST CROIX INC
October 30, 2013

The Women's Coalition of St. Croix works tirelessly to fight the crime and the results of domestic abuse. They provide education, counseling and hands-on help to victims, potential victims and the general public. Their services are available to people who live on St. Croix, but with online exposure and partnerships with other similar organizations they also educate and inform beyond their geographical boundaries.

They also have a compassionate outreach to families of those who have lost their lives to domestic abuse. I know about this aspect first-hand. I'm the mother of a young woman who was murdered in May, 2013, by her former partner...who then committed suicide.

The Women's Coalition honored our Tam's (Tammy Zolner) memory (and that of many others who also lost their lives this year) in their recent "Take Back The Night" silent march and vigil on October 24, 2013. The event was well-attended according to news reports and although I couldn't join them in person my spirit was certainly with them as they held vigil on that night and hopefully, brought new awareness to people there. My heart was warmed and my grief lightened by their kindness and compassion and their personal outreach to me. Although my daughter lived on the island I reside in Indiana and I was impressed by their very caring overtures to me, a stranger.

This organization works on the front lines with people who have been devastated by domestic violence, providing real help to those who often have no place else to turn. They truly deserve your most serious consideration and the honor of being chosen as a Great Non-Profit. Thank you for that consideration.
