For the past three years I have crocheted Domestic Violence Awareness earrings in support of the women at Safe Horizon
the largest non-profit victim services agency in the US; who’s mission is to provide support, prevent violence and promote justice for victims of crime and abuse, their families and communities.
This year along with the earrings I will participate in their campaign #PutTheNailInIt. I was introduced to Safe Horizon by a family member who is an employee of the organization; which rang the Nasdaq Stock Market closing bell on 9/29 to bring awareness to their anti-domestic violence campaign #PutTheNailInIt, and to highlight Domestic Violence Awareness Month.
I fully support this program and hope you will do the same thing. All you need to do to participate in #PutTheNailInIt is donate, paint, and share. Below you will learn a little more about Safe Horizon and Domestic Violence.
3 Ways Safe Horizon Puts the Nail in Domestic Violence
Safe Horizon’s expert leadership develops the best responses for victims and those who help them. As the largest organization helping victims of domestic violence in the United States, Safe Horizon effects profound positive change for hundreds of thousands of victims.
As the main point of entry to Safe Horizon’s services, our hotlines answer over 87,000 calls for help from domestic violence victims a year.
Each year, 45,000 domestic violence survivors and their families rely on Safe Horizon to help them navigate the legal system and provide safe spaces within the courts for cases involving custody, divorce, orders of protection, and child support.
Shelter & Housing
Much more than a safe haven, our eight shelters help nearly 2500 women, children and families affected by domestic violence annually.
