While the topic isn’t good news, what one of our nonprofit fundholder’s is doing to address it is. October is National Domestic Violence Awareness month and Partnership Against Domestic Violence is using this month to shine a spotlight on intimate partner violence through added events and outreach. This year during domestic violence awareness month, PADV has set a goal to raise $7,500 to support the lifesaving work they accomplish every day. Just $100 will provide three hours of counseling for a woman struggling to recover from the trauma of domestic violence. It will help four women get to and from a job interview as they strive to achieve self-sufficiency and more.
