During the month of May, the California Partnership to End Domestic Violence (the Partnership) is running a Mother's Day Appeal to raise funds for EVA's Hope -- a fund that provides emergency financial assistance to victims of domestic violence.
Your contribution will make a huge difference for victims in need of emergency funding. Eighty percent of every dollar donated will directly support survivors of domestic violence.
Each year, California domestic violence organizations provide life-saving services to victims of domestic violence and their children. However, there are times when additional financial support is needed to ensure the safety and well-being of the women, men, and children who seek their services.
Through EVA's Hope, the Partnership will provide emergency financial assistance for domestic violence victims and their children as they flee abuse and rebuild their lives.
Shelters and other direct service organizations that are Partnership members may apply to the Partnership on behalf of domestic violence survivors for an EVA's Hope grant of up to $500 per survivor. These grants can be used by survivors for expenses such as food, transportation costs, rent deposits, employment and education costs, or other unanticipated expenses incurred while escaping violence.
Leaving an abusive relationship is only the first step in starting a new life. Your contribution to EVA's Hope will help a family along the path to a new, violence-free future.
