Why do we need YOUR help?
Did you know there is a war that is not overseas but it is in our communities, schools and churches? This is a war that is silent and destroys homes daily. There are 9,000 people a day, in the United States, that are affected by this war. The youngest victim that has been reported in the State of Texas is 14 and the eldest is 68. Domestic violence is not prejudice to any age, gender, income or ethnicity. According to Texas Council on Family Violence, in 2011 in the State of Texas 120 women and 6 children were killed because of domestic violence. 76 were shot, 17 were stabbed, 12 were strangled, 9 were beaten with hands and 5 were killed by some other weapon or means of death. There were a total of 177,983 family violence incidents in the year of 2011. There were 11,833 adults sheltered causing 14,578 children to be sheltered. However, space is limited at the shelters, which resulted in 21% of adults that called a shelter to seek help were denied. For the fiscal year September 2012-August 2013 First Step has assisted 689 victims of Domestic Violence and/or Sexual Assault. Help these prisoners of the war of domestic violence find a way out. Lets not turn away any victims!


Anonymous client stated, "When my abuser went to jail, that was my time to finally escape the war zone I had called HOME!!! I went to a shelter that allowed me to sleep without having to fear for my life and helped me get what I needed to start a new life away from him."
