Proceeds will benefit the Susan B. Anthony Project which provides confidential and free services including a 24-hour crisis line, 1:1 peer counseling, emergency shelter, support groups, and medical & legal advocacy for victims. Transitional housing offers extended services to previously sheltered families creating a place to live without abuse while helping to achieve autonomy and work toward long-term goals.
Community Education programs are offered to school students in grades K-12 and beyond and to children in summer camp. These programs address age appropriate issues of personal safety, teasing and bullying, conflict resolution, healthy relationships, dating violence, sexual harassment and assault. Through presentations in schools, to civic groups, healthcare, police and other professionals, the agency seeks to build understanding of the scope of abuse and its impact/costs to individual women, children and society.
