Domestic Violence Awareness Month
October 1 – 31 is observed as Domestic Violence Awareness Month. This month long campaign helps connect battered women's advocates across the nation who are working to end violence against women and their children. Domestic violence thrives when we are silent; but if we take a stand and work together, we can end domestic violence.
Throughout the month of October, all donations made by individuals will be matched dollar for dollar, up to $15,000, thanks to a generous community leader. To make a donation today and to have your impact doubled, please click here.
"Horses 4 Heroes" Teams Up To Help Our Survivors Of Abuse
Every week, Horses 4 Heroes opens their facility to our families with the goal of using animal therapy to help our women and children heal from the pain suffered through abuse and violence. Their partnership is invaluable as it offers another avenue to help rebuild their lives after crisis.
From current tenants of The Shade Tree:
"This program was my salvation. I was going through a lot. The horse's gave me a peace of mind...I don't have a daughter with me right now and Horses 4 Heroes lifted my spirits."
"Horses 4 Heroes is one of the most gratifying experiences I have had in the past months. It helps me deal with stress and relaxes me. I love working with the horses. Thank you." [LEARN MORE]
