This resilient Survivor of Domestic Violence is in the process of recovery and is caring for her six children. She is working to support herself and her family but has to walk 2 hours after getting off work to get home. She has access to a scooter, but she must pay for a current tag and get her driver's license reinstated. The total cost for this is $156 and is out of her reach.
The Emergency Fund for Victims of Human Trafficking, Domestic Violence, and Sexual Violence
Because victims fleeing situations of human trafficking, domestic violence, and sexual violence often need assistance immediately (sometimes in a matter of hours, not days) this fund provides for those emergent needs. We rely on our community partners who are established leaders in the field, including Helpmate and Our VOICE, to alert us to these cases and to disperse these funds to help those who are most vulnerable at their time of greatest need.
