We are no longer accepting donations on this campaign, but there are other ways for you to support us today!

Even though Domestic Violence Awareness Month is over, the season of giving is just getting started. Join us as we celebrate our appeal season, including Giving Tuesday on November 28th. This is a time to bring our community together, share stories of survivors, highlight some of our work, and take a stand towards fighting gender-based violence.

Our annual appeal campaign will support our key programs like the Centralized Training Institute, the Illinois Domestic Violence Hotline, Survivor Fund, Policy & Advocacy, and our Housing Advocacy work.

These programs have reached a wide range of survivors with various needs. After our Survivor Fund drastically expanded this year, we have been able to serve 6,334 applicants! Among survivor fund applicants, these were the top five needs for financial assistance:
  1. Rental Assistance – 69%
  2. Utility Assistance – 63%
  3. Food – 62%
  4. Transportation – 62%
  5. Toiletries – 53%

“To be stuck with my back against the wall, not sure where to turn for assistance, your amazing team was the light our family needed to get out of a dark situation. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!”
- Survivor Fund Applicant

We do this work for survivors, their dreams, their safety, and their future. We know we cannot do this work alone, but together we can grow our community and stand with all survivors. Will you join our commitment to creating a world free of gender-based violence?
