When I heard that 30-70 women and children are turned away every month at the shelter because there is no room, I knew something had to be done. This is unacceptable. These women and children need to escape a dangerous situation and have a safe place to stay. So, I created a committee of professional women who feel the same way I do and we raised $15k for the Domestic Violence Center. This is now an annual event and we hope to raise over $30K in our second year.
