Since the Foundation was established in 2006, we’ve provided a variety of services to assist family violence victims and their families regain control of their lives.
Depending upon a victim’s needs, we generally refer those who contact us to established social service agencies or professionals who specialize in meeting their needs. Occasionally, however, no agency or professional is available to help.
as women’s shelters, sexual assault crisis centers, food banks
Below are a few examples of how our volunteers have helped:
Write as news releases?
We found volunteers and a truck to help a mother and her three young children to move after they were suddenly evicted by her estranged husband’s parents
We arranged for a mother and two of her seven children abused in foster care to have free dental work done
We arranged for a father of seven children who were abused in foster care to get four badly-needed new tires put on his truck when he couldn’t afford them.
We provided free shelter, food, transportation and emotional support to a young mother whose ex-boyfriend tried to kill her when shelters were full and she had no place else to go.
We assisted the three children of a murdered woman and her family members to learn how and where she died, to understand how the legal system worked, to obtain free legal assistance to set up a trust for the children and free defense counsel for one child who was arrested for a misdemeanor.
If you or someone you know is a family violence victim, survivor or family member, and you need help with most anything, you are not alone. We are here to help.
Depending upon your needs and situation, we may refer you to other community resources – such as the North Texas Food Bank – or we may provide it ourselves. We usually refer victims to established community resources, but that’s not always possible, or such a resource may not exist.
The services we offer include, but are not limited to:
Basic necessities – such as food, personal and household items
