At the Bay Area Women’s Center (BAWC), we believe that men are central to achieving our mission to eliminate domestic violence in our community. We know that not all men are violent. We know that domestic violence is not just a women’s issue. 

That is why we need you. 

Since 2013, Great Men across the Great Lakes Bay Region and beyond have pledged their support of the cause by donating $100 or more and using their voice and influence to affect change in the community. As the conversation about these heinous offenses continues, we need your help each and every year to make our mission a reality. 

With your support, BAWC can continue to offer life-saving services such as: emergency shelter, individual and group therapy, legal advocacy, transitional supportive housing and Sexual Assault Nurse Examinations among many other top-notch services. 

Join us by taking a stand against domestic violence. Be a part of the solution.  

Sincerely the Members of the Great Men Committee,

Jeremy Rick, BAWC Executive Director
Bob Thomas, Committee Chair, Thumb Bank and Trust
Jeff Hunt, Committee Co-Chair, State Farm Insurance
Honorable Craig Alston, Attorney
