Be one of the 100 people who make a stand this year against domestic violence. Your contribution will help to protect those who have suffered violence at the hands of a family member. It may also prevent others from being harmed.
Now is your time to Take a Stand against domestic violence in Carteret County. Domestic Violence is an epidemic – locally and nationally. On average Carteret County Communications receives over 1700 calls annually – for law enforcement assistance in domestic violence incidents. Additionally, the Carteret County Domestic Violence Program provides direct services to approximately 300 men, women and children each year.
In Carteret County we need help to ‘Break the Cycle’ of abuse for children in our community. Husbands, brothers, fathers, mothers, sisters, aunts, uncles and everyone who believes that domestic violence is a crime, we ask you to become a part of the solution and make a difference with a charitable donation of $100. Donations can be made in honor and memory of a loved one or special person in your life.
Your pledge will help immediately – here’s how:
- $100 equals 4 hours of individual counseling, essential to breaking the cycle of abuse
- $100 equals 5 hours of court advocacy, providing a voice, strength and support
- $100 equals 30 days of safe shelter, to a family of two seeking safety from further abuse
Men and Women, be a Role Model for our Future! Become a ‘Community Partner’ by donating $100 or more to break the cycle of abuse and encourage co-workers, partners and friends to team together to raise $100 as a group. Make your donation by mail to CCDVP, PO Box 2279, Morehead City, NC 28557 by Sunday, June 21st.
