To help support domestic violence services, educate the community about coercive control, push for the behavior to be criminalized nationally, and to provide transitional housing and support for the survivors still hoping to be released from prison.
Begin to Build a Relationship
We know you care about where your money goes and how it is used. Connect with this organization’s leadership in order to begin to build this important relationship. Your email will be sent directly to this organization’s Director of Development and/or Executive Director.
Why I give? It is an honor to be able to support Home Free to provide these women with a home as they transition to their next stage of life – freedom.
Giving Survivors a Chance at a New Life
“We’re relying on private donations for Home Free, and we have a waiting list right now. Tammy is always on the phone with women inside prison helping with commutations, and we would like to welcome everybody into Home Free, but we can’t. It costs about $50,000 to house a woman here for six months. We take a survivor in for six months and then help her get into her own apartment. And the supporting services continue on forever. Your donation is well spent and important. It is a home,” says Development Director Sheila Von Driska.
