Programs

  • Dinner for Divas

Our signature, fundraising gala, honors a minimum of 150 domestic violence survivors, while bringing together corporations, national leaders, celebrities and individuals.  As young as 13 years old, the survivors receive glamorous personal makeovers, sophisticated pampering, free self-defense classes and an “A-style” dinner with our celebrity guests and corporate friends.  Our honorees (or “Divas” as we call them) are celebrated for persevering through their domestic abuse and are treated to a time of their lives!

  • Walk a Mile in Their Shoes

A 5K run/1 mile walk where participants from across the country come together to advocate against domestic violence and have the option to run or walk in honor or memory of someone affected by domestic violence. Those who choose to walk are paired with a survivor, who shares their personal story with them. The walk raises funds for domestic violence programs offered through the foundation that support victims and statewide shelters.

  • Survivors' Conference

Our annual empowerment conference, targets individuals that are previous or current victims of domestic violence or sexual assault. It includes health screenings and financial literacy, primarily targeting men or women that are previous or current victims of domestic violence. The purpose of this event is to empower survivors to achieve self-sufficiency, promote healthy living and train them in the areas needed to become independent and financially capable of supporting themselves.
