Why are you Walking?
We save lives, relieve deep suffering, unleash the human potential
of women and children, and strengthen our whole community.
Abuse and violence against women and children is not a personal issue,
but a community one.
The needs of women and children in our community outpace the
level of government and other agency investment. Each year
approximately 30% of our costs, or just over $1 million, are unfunded.
By participating in Freedom Walk and raising money on our behalf you
will accomplish two things. First, you will show the community that
violence against women is not acceptable and second,
help us deliver the vital services and supports needed for
women and children fleeing abuse in our communities.
