I Feel the Love Project August 2013
This month the I Feel the Love Project is honored to draw attention to the issue of domestic violence. As long as one person is suffering from domestic violence, that is one too many. We at the I Feel the Love Project are rallying around domestic violence victims and their children this month by designing and creating unsigned birthday cards that will be sent to the SAFEHOME shelter for domestic violence survivors.
SAFEHOME’s shelter offers a confidential, safe and healing atmosphere. Every year, more than 350 women and children find safety, help and hope at SAFEHOME’s shelter. SAFEHOME’s shelter offers safe, supportive and accessible shelter accommodations to women and children.
- Meals are provided
- Clothing and other personal items are available if necessary
- Counseling for adults and children
- Housing Assistance
- Educational and Employment Assistance
- Court and Legal Supportive Services
- Links to Community and Outreach Resources
- Bilingual Advocacy
Most rooms are of universal design, with two bedrooms specifically adapted for persons with physical disabilities.
Children are also victims of domestic violence. They may exhibit fear, anxiety, depression, anger and other overwhelming emotions. At any given time, 50% or more of shelter residents are under the age of 17. SAFEHOME staff are trained and experienced in dealing with trauma in children. Services for children include: children and family advocacy, counseling care, the children’s center, child-friendly environment, outdoor playground, computer lab, child-friendly meals.
If you would like to be a part of this month's project, please create an unsigned birthday card or cards for women and/or children. We will be sending these unsigned birthday cards to SAFEHOME so that they can keep them on hand for their shelter residents'. When the need arises, the women and children will have access to free handcrafted birthday cards. Who doesn't want to be a part of this? I know I will be making several cards this month. Please join me. You will be so happy you did.
All you need to do is:
Submit your hand crafted card/s by August 31st to:
P.O. Box 1203
Atascadero, CA 93423
