Ann's Story of Hope

Ann says, “The Victim Center is the first place where I found peace."

Holidays by their very nature should be a time of peace and goodwill for all. However, for Ann* and her child, holidays and every day were a time of fear and uncertainty. After many years of abuse, isolation, and manipulation, Ann finally got the courage to take her young son and leave her husband. Ann called The Victim Center frightened that her abusive husband would come after them. An advocate helped Ann develop a safety plan for leaving, and connected Ann to other community resources.

Today Ann has a job, lives independently with her son, and is attending group classes at The Victim Center.

Even more importantly, she is no longer living in fear.

Shira's Story of Hope

Shira called The Victim Center's hotline after her daughters disclosed their step-father had been sexually abusing them.

The need for this service is urgent.

Over the past two years The Victim Center has experienced a 38% increase in the use of our hotline. That equals an increase of 800 more calls per year.

The cost for one 24-hour-day of hotline services is $238, and a half day is $119.

As you contemplate your holiday gifts this year, we invite you to consider giving a “day” of hotline services in honor of someone (of several someones) on your gift list.

Please help us continue to help families find peace and safety 24- hours a day, 365 days a year -- especially through the holidays.

THANK YOU!
