November 2011 Highlights
Emergency Client Assistance Program Gets $150K Boost
Families in urgent need of help because of violence and abuse now have more support, thanks to a $150,000 second-year grant from a private foundation to our Emergency Client Assistance Program. The grant also represents a 50% increase in funding from 2010, which means providing more families with the financial assistance they need in order to recover, to regain their lives, and to have their chance at safer and more independent futures.
How the Emergency Client Assistance Program helps:
The police referred Doug* to Safe Horizon after he'd suffered a brutal robbery and attack. Doug had been punched and slapped and robbed of his monthly paycheck before his attackers set fire to him. Just before the attack, Doug learned that he had cancer; he’d planned to leave the city and return to his family so they could care for him. After the attack, Doug was terrified and traumatized - and also left with no money to go home. Thanks to a generous donation to our Emergency Client Assistance Program from a private donor, Safe Horizon had the funds to cover the cost of Doug's ticket home. Doug is now safe and being cared for by his family.
After two years, Judy* decided to leave her abusive husband. One evening while she waited for the subway train, her husband found her and attacked her. Judy was so frightened by the attack that she couldn't return to work: Her husband knew where she worked and she was afraid he'd come after her there. With no money and nowhere else to go, Judy called Safe Horizon. Judy found the refuge she needed at one of our domestic violence shelters, and once she arrived, she wasted little time in looking for another job. Judy soon found another job, yet didn't have the money to afford to travel to and from work. Safe Horizon relied on our Emergency Client Assistance Program, which because of generous support from a private foundation was able to provide Judy with funds to cover her transportation costs. The small grant made a big change for Judy, giving her the independence and chance she needed to live her life without violence and abuse.
We are grateful to the support we receive for the Emergency Client Assistance Program and thank our private donor for their generosity and commitment to making a critical difference in the lives of victims of crime and abuse.
