Stepping Out with the Stars 2021
On Thursday, August 19, 2021, we will be hosting our 5th Stepping Out with the Stars Gala at The Palazzo Grande in Shelby Township. We are pleased to host this event every year and know that its continued success is dependent on community partners like you. We ask that you please consider supporting this event by committing to a sponsorship. Now more than ever, as a result of the COVID pandemic, survivors need your support. It is our hope that we will not only have a financially successful event, but that we will also raise awareness to our cause by bringing community members together and letting our voices be heard.
This year marks our 41st year of providing free comprehensive and confidential services such as an emergency shelter, 24-hour hotline, Personal Protection Order (PPO) assistance, legal advocacy, counseling, and a Forensic Nurse & Advocacy Program, and community education. This year we have added a new housing program that will eliminate a significant barrier that many survivors face – having a safe place to live after leaving the shelter.
Our new housing program provides an apartment for up to 24 months to help survivors start a new life. They will also have access to a suite of services that will put them on track to self-sufficiency. The program offers employment opportunities, educational opportunities, and career coaching.
On behalf of the many survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault that will benefit most from your kindness and generosity, we want to personally thank you for your consideration and hope to partner with you in supporting a critical need in our community. Please call if you have any questions.
