Record Number Of Incoming Crisis Calls in 2012

By the end of September, our crisis center had already received 2,401 incoming crisis calls for the year, more than we received for 2011 and we have three more months left until the end of the year. This means calls will increase at least 25% over the previous 2011 with an estimated 525 women served by the end of the year.

Your donations help to ensure that our crisis center is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to support victims in terrible situations.

Here are some quotes from our callers:

"I still feel lucky to be safe and every day I feel a little stronger."

"I took a walk on the beach today and thanked God for leading me to you."

"I am finally sleeping through the night not having to worry my ex waking me up with a knife to my throat. You saved my life and I don't know how to thank you enough."

Your donations help transform victims into survivors. Thank you!
