Each year AVENUES provides a wide variety of services to over 1200 women, children and men who have been the victim of domestic violence and/or sexual assault/abuse. These 1200 individuals are not faceless strangers. They might be:
… the teller at the bank who has been raped by an acquaintance.
… the wife of the couple who sits behind you at church. Her husband only hits her in places where bruises will not show.
… the quiet boy who belongs to your son’s Cub Scout pack. His uncle has been sexually abusing him for the past two years.
… the single mom who lives next door. Her boyfriend gave her a black eye and knocked out a tooth. She told you she tripped over a toy and fell.
Or maybe it was you at one time…
AVENUES services are always free and confidential to anyone. Among the help we provide:
- Safe shelter to women and their children.
- Advocacy at the hospital, police station or court to help victims of domestic and sexual violence in the aftermath of an assault.
- Transportation to court.
- Information and support for victims, whether they choose legal action or not.
- Hope for the future. The victim can become a survivor and create a healthy violence free life.
AVENUES cannot continue this essential work without your financial support. You can make it possible to help victims of domestic and sexual violence reclaim their lives. Your contribution is tax deductible. Donations of $100 or more are eligible for the Missouri Tax Credit. This is a special tax credit program to provide more benefits to those who donate $100 or more to a domestic violence shelter. For more information regarding this, please contact AVENUES at 573-406-1400.
Your support of AVENUES and your contribution are deeply appreciated and make a difference to the women, children and men served by AVENUES each year. Click here to download the letter and donation form.
