What’s New

We want to say a huge thank you to EastBurn for donating over $4,000 from the Grilled Cheese Invitational and proceeds from grilled cheese sales during the month of August! What an incredible way to support survivors in our communities! Thank you EastBurn!


We are so excited to announce that we have recently received generous capacity building grants from both Meyer Memorial Trust and The Collins Foundation! These funds will help us improve our services through increased capacity within our Volunteer & Outreach Program and Advocacy Program. Not to mention the positive benefits it will have on our technology and evaluation capacities. Thank you MMT & Collins! We are excited to partner with you in doing our best work in support of survivors.


We are always happy to share how we’re improving! Read more about how survivors experience our services in our 2014 Survivor-Led Evaluation Final Report. Find out how our community sees us in our 2014 Community Partner Survey Report. Our Quarterly Reports are also available under our new ‘Reports’ tab!
