Safe Harbor’s Fundraising Affected by COVID-19

On March 26th, we should have been together at Westfield celebrating a night of serious fun for a really good cause at our 10th Annual Fashion with a Passion. As we are staying at home for the health and safety of our community, Safe Harbor is working tirelessly to ensure that domestic violence victims and their children have somewhere to turn in this critical time.

Home is not safe for everyone. Right now victims and their children are trapped with their abusers, and need organizations like Safe Harbor more than ever.

Fashion with a Passion provides $150,000 annually for Safe Harbor’s services, and although we plan to hold the event in October 2020, we need your support now.

We are all living with a level of fear and uncertainty, especially victims and their children, but you can help. Please consider making a gift today. Together, we can help our neighbors who are trapped at home when home is not safe.

 

I am a survivor of domestic violence.


“I didn’t know that I was being abused...

I am a survivor of domestic violence.


“I didn’t know that I was being abused because my definition of abuse looked different. My husband pushed me, but most of my suffering was verbal and psychological. I left my husband to protect our young daughter. Almost immediately I felt the weight of his oppression begin to lift. I could see a difference in my daughter as well. Then he broke into my home and assaulted me in-front of her.

I sought help and was led to Safe Harbor. My daughter and I are in counseling now. I am sorting out the mess that abuse has caused. I am finding my voice and seeking opportunities to grow and better my life as well as my daughter's. She will gauge her self- worth from my own self- worth. I must show her that she deserves the best, by expecting the best for myself. Many years I suffered in silence. By telling my story and being honest with friends and family I’m taking control of my life again.”
