Nearly one in four women experience domestic violence in their lifetimes, and children raised in a home where the mother is abused are 15 times more likely to be abused than children raised in nonviolent homes. However, transitioning out of violent situations can be extremely difficult and may require extensive support. The Partnership Against Domestic Violence (PADV) endeavors to end intimate-partner violence and empower its survivors through emergency intervention, shelter, education, and other forms of support.
PADV's supportive housing program aids women and their children with home rental, utilities, childcare, and legal help for 24 months and provides transitional housing for women who are working toward living independently. Case managers work directly with clients to establish long-term goals such as obtaining a degree or beginning a new career. Out of five women who recently completed the program, all secured gainful employment, with four of them increasing their salaries and one buying a home.
Join G-Team and donate $10 to help PADV sustain its supportive housing program. If G-Team members raise $500, then PADV can pay for two weeks of rent for one woman with three children. Each additional $250 raised will fund another week of housing.
