On behalf of all our client families, we want to extend our heartfelt gratitude to all of the participants and sponsors of the 3rd Annual Safe Places Golf Tournament June 29 at the Landsdowne Golf Club in Leesburg, VA.
Your support enabled to raise $105,000 for the women and children who have escaped a life of fear and terror for one of love, support and hope as they build a new life free of abuse on their way to a bright future.
These families are not victims – they are survivors who have taken charge of their life and with the support of people like you they have a place to call home for up to two years, help with financial literacy and life skills, and assistance with furthering their education so that when the time comes for them to become self-sufficient they are ready.
In 2017, Safe Places helped 30 households made up of 35 adults and 72 children, making for a total of 7,393 “bed nights” for those who may very have been homeless, living in a domestic violence shelter, or worse, still living with their abuser because they had nowhere else to go.
So again, on behalf of all of these women and children who have a “safe place” to sleep every night in their very own beds, we simply say “thank you.
