Your gift will make a difference to those we serve.
One in four women are victims of domestic violence and one in six women are victims of sexual violence. These are our sister, mothers, friends, and co-workers. This statistic is just not acceptable. The Laurel Center works every day to support victims of domestic and sexual violence. As the only agency that provides these services in Winchester, Frederick and Clarke Counties, we know all too well the impact it has on our community. Having recently expanded our sexual violence services to Warren County, we look forward to partnering there as well.
The Circle of Support Giving Club allows you to be personally involved in supporting these victims in our community. Your support means that women, men, and their children can continue to receive the help and services they need to break the cycle of violence in their lives.
Your annual commitment (at the level of your choice) will ensure our services are available to those who need it. The Laurel Center’s vision is working together in our community to stop the cycle of domestic and sexual violence. Won’t you please join us?
