"Walking In Confidence" DV Walk-A-Thon
SILENT TEARS DV FOUNDATION WILL BE FACILITATING A DOMESTIC VIOLENCE WALK-A-THON. WE ARE SEEKING TO RAISE FUNDS THROUGH DONATIONS SO THAT WE CAN PURCHASE REAL ESTATE PROPERTY TO BE USED AS A TRANSITIONAL HOME.
Silent Tears DV Foundation was founded in October 2010 and is a 501(c)3 anti-domestic violence non-profit organization dedicated to help women,children and men involved in domestic violence relationships.
To break the silence, the cycle and eradicate domestic violence. We strive to assist victims,survivors and their families by providing them with information through workshops & resources and connecting them with services to better aid them through their personal crisis.
We provide support and advocacy services to victims/survivors of domestic violence and their children. We encourage empowerment of survivors and work towards the advancement of all people through awareness and prevention activities.
* Establish a Silent Tears Foundation House which will provide shelter for the victims of domestic abuse and their children
* Provide educational and counseling resources for adults and teens on domestic violence
* Funding for education scholarships for victims and or children.
There are not enough transitional homes to aide women & their children that are trying to get out of abusive relationships.
** SILENT TEARS DV FOUNDATION IS SEEKING DONATIONS TO PURCHASE REAL ESTATE PROPERTY THAT WILL BE USED AS A TRANSITIONAL HOME. **
Our foundation would provide temporary, safe housing to women with children and supportive services through intensive case management to help the families achieve self-sufficiency and move into permanent housing.
Good Morning FBF,
I humbly come asking you to do something for ME, my sisters and I have a 501c3 non-profit organization against Domestic Violence for Men, Women and Teens!
I have 1,500 plus friends. If you haven't been through some sort of mental, physical or emotional relationship that wasn't healthy I'm sure you know someone that has. Some are here today to tell their stories, some have passed on due to physical escalations with fatal results. As we embark on this long holiday weekend, whether you are working or on vacation....
I ask that you please register for our "Walking In Confidence" Movement Against Domestic Violence. PLEASE PLEASE make a $1.00 donation to our organization as well.
Our goal is to raise $500.00 by Monday July 7th! The person who helps us this this $500.00 mark this weekend will receive a PRIZE!
I thank you in advance!
Monica Steele-Taylor & Dolores Rose Mosley
112 Unmet Requests for Services in One Day, of Which 52%

Victims made more than 100 requests for services, including

provided was were housing advocacy and financial assistance,
followed by legal representation.
Impact of Unmet Requests for Help
Domestic violence programs do not always know what happens
when a survivor courageously calls a stranger to ask for a bed
or other help and the services aren't available however 44%
of programs report that victims are forced to return to their
abuser and 19% report that victims become homeless.
Cause of Unmet Requests for Help
41% reported reduced government funding.
33% reported not enough available staff.
30% reported private funding cuts.
19% reported reduced individual donations.
Across New Jersey 34 (5%) staff positions were eliminated in
the past year and most of these positions were direct services,
such as shelter or legal advocates, so there were fewer
advocates to answer calls for help.
1,331 Victims Served in One Day
472 domestic violence victims (267 children and 205 adults) found
refuge in emergency shelters or transitional housing provided by
local domestic violence programs.
859 adults and children received non-residential assistance and
services, including counseling, legal advocacy, and children's
