Making A Difference!

Posted 12/12/16 by Linda Offray

Domestic violence affect us all as a society. Weather it happen to us, a family member, friend we all pay for it in some way or another. Please see a few statistics below. Domestic violence programs need your financial support, volunteers, sponsorships, donations etc. We can not do it without the help of individuals like yourself. Please help us so we can continue to help victims of domestic violence and their children. We have seen an increase in the last five months. On an average, we have a new client coming into the office fleeing domestic violence a week, sometimes two individuals a week. Domestic violence is a serious problem!

Victims of abuse use various resources to help them heal from past incidents.  One way is through healing art workshops.  These circles are created among peers to release pain via artistic expression.  Many of these programs are made possible through public donations.  If you feel moved to help in some way, feel free to learn more.  Shepherd's Door, a domestic violence resource center, in Pasadena CA hosts these healing art programs.  Feel free to give a donation here.  Thank you for your support!
