Survivors Emergency Fund

by The Second Step

Your support empowers us to adapt and pivot as our survivors' needs change due to the ongoing uncertainty brought on by the Covid-19 pandemic. Each day brings new challenges and new needs as we adapt to the “new normal.” Flexible funding allows us to respond to changing needs quickly in meaningful ways. It also allows us to provide basic needs like food, clothing and other resources to families in our community stretched beyond their capacity. 

Your support is needed more than ever, as the effects of Covid-19 increased the severity and lethality of Domestic Violence. Thank you for standing with us to step up for survivors as we meet important moments head on – to deepen our positive impact and to do even more to help everyone in our community have a safe place to call home. 

If you are interested in becoming more involved, please contact us.
