One in every four women will experience domestic violence in her lifetime, and the most dangerous time for a woman in an abusive situation and her dependents is when they try to leave. Additionally, many women seeking shelter at crisis centers have reported that concern for the well-being of their pets prevented them from seeking shelter sooner. Through its Lean On Me Direct Relief Fund, the Wisconsin Coalition Against Domestic Violence seeks to alleviate some of the stresses of escaping from dangerous and often life-threatening situations by providing emergency resources for women and their children and pets.
Since each woman's needs differ depending on her unique situation, Lean On Me provides customized support to survivors of domestic violence that typically reaches up to $200 worth of services for a woman and two children. Emergency resources may include toiletries (about $15/person), a night of shelter ($25/person), emergency transportation (about $20), and kennel services for one dog or cat ($15). Due to lack of funding, many of Wisconsin's domestic-violence programs, including Wisconsin Coalition for Domestic Violence, are struggling to accommodate growing numbers of women who have experienced domestic violence and need emergency resources.
Join G-Team and donate $10 to help provide emergency resources for women escaping violent situations. If G-Team members raise $400, then the Wisconsin Coalition Against Domestic Violence can provide $200 worth of emergency resources to two women and their children; resources may include toiletries, transportation, shelter, and kennel services for a dog or cat. Each additional $200 raised will provide emergency resources for another woman and her children.
