CHANGE FOR CHANGE IN MAY
Supporting the Women’s Resource of the New River Valley
Here we are into the month of May! What a great month as many celebrate Mothers’ Day, graduations, and the beginning of summer. It’s such a happy time, right? For many people in the New River Valley, these days can be a continuance of needing a safe place from abuse. The Women’s Resource Center of the New River Valley is our Change for Change Recipient for the month of May. Their mission is to create a community free of domestic and sexual violence. Their guiding principles include safety, dignity, respect, empowerment, free services, community collaboration and freedom from violence.
Throughout the year, many organizations and individuals ask the needs of the children and adults served by the Women's Resource Center of the New River Valley. During a recent conversation with one of the staff members, it was revealed that the Women’s Resource Center often provides transportation to the hospital, transportation to a safe place, funds for utilities for a non-residential client who struggles to pay a utility bill or purchase groceries for children.
As we welcome sunny days of May and the approaching summer months, let us each be mindful of the extraordinary work accomplished by the Women’s Resource Center. For 30 years, they have been providing hope and help to those who need it in the New River Valley. Let’s help them continue to be a safe place for people in our community. Please consider supporting them as our May Change for Change recipient. You can help make summer days brighter for children and adults who rely on this vital service.
