“Working class communities, communities of color, marginalized people have always, always been on the frontlines. We have always been outside protesting and we’re still doing that because we don’t have the privilege to stop being on the frontlines.
Outreach on the Frontlines
Un Día de Belleza
On Monday, August 5, our generous partners from Don't Forget About Me and Salons By JC hosted a Day of Beauty for survivors of domestic and sexual violence. Several of our clients, their children and a couple of lucky VIP staff members received the royal treatment.
Tell HUD not to separate and displace families.
We believe all survivors of domestic and sexual violence and their families deserve stability and healing after abuse. Access to secure and safe housing, and the ability to live together with family members that are the vital support network for many, is critical for the communities we serve.
