Dear International [Neighbors] Group for knitting,

Thank you so much for your donation of handmade garments to SafeHouse Center. Because of you, survivors in our community know that they are not alone! We are especially grateful for your support as we look toward a year of significantly decreased federal funding. Now, more than ever, your gift makes a critical impact, and allows us to continue to provide the services that make such an important difference to survivors.

Every day, survivors come to us with an abundance of hope because they believe that their lives, and the lives of their children, can be better. That hope is sustained through many of our services: support groups, legal advocacy and individual counseling. Our emergency shelter, 24-hour HelpLine and response teams are available any time, day or night, to remind survivors that they do not have to go through these difficult times alone, and that hope is available. Every year, we help over 5, 000 survivors find safety, and your commitment to our work helps us do just that.

As one survivor recently shared: “When I cam to SafeHouse Center late one night with my two young children, I had very little hope. We were tired, hungry and afraid. We were welcomed in, fed and shown to a room. As I laid my head down, I realized I had been so afraid that I had not slept fully in over a year. That night, my children and I slept peacefully, knowing we were safe. I woke up the next morning rested, and then realized… there was hope after all.”

Our work truly makes a difference, and without your support, we couldn’t continue to provide it. If you have and questions about SafeHouse Center or would like more information, please do not hesitate to call 734-973-024. Thank you for supporting SafeHouse Center and understanding the need for services that work to break the cycle of violence.

Sincerely,

Director of Resource Development.
