Christina House Annual Fundraiser
RECOGNIZE, REPORT, PREVENT
Survivors know, from their own experience, that you cannot ‘fix’ an abusive relationship, however much they still loved their partner or clung on to the hope that they would change. The only option is to ‘get out’, but only when the time is right and it is safe to do so, and ideally with help from someone who understands domestic violence and abuse.
Victims are warned that things would get worse over time and not to delay, and are urged to get themselves in a safe situation rather than ‘being carried out in a body bag.’
We are inviting you to JOIN us in this event, but we are asking you NOT to come!
We are offering you a way to Support Christina House, a program of Catholic Charities Regional Agency, without buying tickets; without going out and worrying about staying safe; without having to search for a parking spot.
A “non event” saves time, resources, and keeps us all safe at home. This also helps us to be better stewards of the donor dollar.
Your gifts will support domestic violence services, education and prevention.
Your response could save a life. Donate today.
Christina House, a program of Catholic Charities Regional Agency, offers emergency shelter of victims of domestic violence. Once in shelter care, a case manager works with the individual and helps to access available services in the county. Support services include legal advocacy, counseling and transportation. Other services include a 24-hour crisis line, outreach and educational speakers, community awareness and response to hospital calls for rape and sexual assault
Please consider a donation today to help survivors of domestic violence living in our communities.
