Genesis Women’s Shelter & Support: Funding from this year’s Giving Day campaign will support our children’s program which serves 450 children each year. At Genesis, we know that about 40% of boys who witness abuse will go on to perpetuate violence as adults, while half of all girls who witness abuse find themselves in abusive relationships as women. Breaking the generational cycle of violence is only possible by providing specialized counseling services to the youngest victims of abuse. Your support allows us to provide safety, strength and hope to children, helping them create the abuse-free future they deserve.
