The Hotline is excited to announce its recent $200,000 gift from the Avon Foundation for Women in support of The Hotline’s efforts to answer calls from domestic violence victims, friends and family members. In 2012, over 53,000 calls for help to The Hotline went unanswered due to a lack of resources. The Avon Foundation’s generous contribution will support two part-time advocates as well as additional relief advocates to support The Hotline’s efforts in responding to calls for help from thousands of women, men, children and families seeking help annually.
Over the last 16 years, The National Domestic Violence Hotline has been proud to call the Avon Foundation for Women a true partner in making a difference in the lives of victims of domestic violence. With continued support from the Avon Foundation, together we can work to end this epidemic. Thank you to everyone at the Avon Foundation for Women for your continued contributions to helping domestic violence victims.
