Held annually during Domestic Violence Awareness Month in October, the Safe Alliance Breakfast of Hope has been a community awareness tool educating attendees about the devastating impact of domestic violence and sexual assault on our region and how they can support survivors and make our community safer.
The COVID-19 pandemic has made our world unpredictable, but we do know that survivors will continue to need our life-saving and life-changing services. Safe Alliance is experiencing an increase in calls to our 24/7 Greater Charlotte Hope Line and we continue supporting survivors through our shelter, advocacy, counseling, legal services and more .
In an effort to ensure a strong continuation of our education and fundraising efforts in 2020, the Breakfast of Hope will transform! Safe Alliance will launch a community awareness campaign, “Hope Is Calling,” providing a greatly expanded media presence, sharing our message with a broader audience and promoting the Greater Charlotte Hope Line.
Volunteers who previously hosted tables at the breakfast are invited to become Champions of Hope. Each Champion will raise life-saving funds for the agency while providing a fun, educational activity for attendees. On October 29, 2020 we will host a virtual event, giving the community an opportunity to learn about the impact of domestic and sexual violence and Safe Alliance’s mission to support our neighbors in need. The virtual event will offer an engaging and educational presentation, updates from Safe Alliance, and a call for continued support of survivors. The presentation will be recorded and available for Champions to share as well.
Thanking you for helping us make a positive impact on the lives of our neighbors in need!
