We would like to start by saying thank you. Your support throughout the year means so much to us, and survivors are more than grateful for each and every one of you.
With that being said, the year is coming to an end. We would like to ask you to continue your efforts of supporting us with an end-of-year donation. To put into perspective the importance of our organization, according to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) there were 2,432 domestic violence offenses reported in Manatee County in 2017. Experts believe only about 10% of domestic violence cases are reported. An estimated 10 million people are affected by intimate partner violence each year in the United States. Annually, domestic violence is responsible for over 1,500 deaths in the United States and as many as 200 deaths in Florida alone.
Whichever form of abuse you or a loved one is dealing with, YOU and THEY deserve better.
Your donations fund our many survivor focused services which include:
- 24-Hour Helpline and online Live Chat
- Emergency Safe Shelter
- Attorney Injunction for Protection Project (restraining order assistance)
- Advocacy Programs
- Children’s Programs
- Prevention Programs
