D.A.D. - Domestic Abuse Disruption

$46,888 of $100,000 goal

Raised by 815 people in 47 months
www.DADHelps.org   For the past Five years we have been assisting victims of Domestic Violence to escape from their abusive partners and environments. We have done complete home moves as well as escorting these women from homes and transporting them to family , or to a shelter, such as The Turning Point in Roanoke, Virginia, a secure Center that offers housing as well as assistance, counseling and legal advocacy. We have accompanied women to and from court proceedings to prevent harrasment or intimidation. We serve Divorce and other Legal Process to expedite Court Proceedings. Many of these women have no means or other resources. Often Law Enforcement won't or can't help until after an assault has been committed. As with everything, cost from gas, truck rentals, and moving assistance adds up. If you would care to donate to help one of these women, it will be appreciated more than you may ever know. Perhaps you were once a victim, or have or had a loved one who is a victim and wished you could have done something for them yet didnt know where to turn. Your donation will help make sure that others know where to turn. Any amount will help, no matter if it jingles or folds. Thank You  You can find out more about our services at www.DADHelps.org

Many who have expressed their gratitude for services provided have called us "Hero's". I am not sure that word applies to what we do. However I will tell you who it befits to a tee. Those donors who, though small in number, donate so often and repeatedly to keep us rolling and trying to fight the good fight. Without them we would have come to a screeching halt months ago! Now we are just $1358. away from a true financial foothold of $10,000. dollars in a lump sum pledge. I need some New Hero's to make this happen. If you have been on the sideline this past year and watched, we invite you now, right now, to join in and make a true difference in the lives of those being oppressed and beaten down. 100 donors with donations of only $13.58 gets us all where we need to be. Please if you have the ability and the means, help us help them. Donate now.

On Friday Oct 9th I paid the filing fees and filed the incorporation paper work for D.A.D with the SCC and shortly will have the EIN for submitting our 501(c)(3) status as a Non Profit. Thank you to the Bullington Law Firm for handling this for us. We stand right now $1468 dollars away from our goal of $20,000 in total donations over the last 13 months. Once we raise that $1468. we will immediately receive a pledge of $10,000. ! That is so huge for us to have a lump sum to use to assist those Abuse Victims in need. It also helps us to add to the services already provided by implementing the Job & Life Skills Tutoring program which is beneficial not just to the victims but to our entire community. Helping these women become self sustaining and employable saves us all. But it all, current services already provided to hundreds and hundreds of women, and future services all cease without you and your support, and the much needed $1468. in donations. We are the only service taking this hands on approach. And it is working. We don't chant. We don't have slogans. We don't burn candles. We don't wear ribbons. That's not our style and their are plenty of others taking that route. A very small number of generous donors have helped us make a difference. There are 400,000 plus people in the Roanoke, Botetourt, Franklin, Montgomery, and Craig County area, our primary service location. Its your women we are helping. We ask you now to help us. No amount is to small. Your change can help make a change. We need you now. Don't wait on your neighbor to act. Join them, and us in Disrupting the violence these women suffer.

We are only $1758 dollars away from receiving the pledge of $10,000. dollars from thesecularsociety.org/ and being in a much stronger position to not only keep providing assistance to those in need , but to begin providing needed additional services as well. This is the Roanoke Valley (and beyond) only hands on solution to this growing problem. While others simply say "NO" ,we just GO!

Your organization just helped save a very good friend of mine last week after several years of abuse. Breaks my heart that I didn't know that this was going on for so long. She was badly abused for years, until he literally tried killing her last week. Within a matter of a few hours this group showed up not only providing support and protection, but completely moved her whole house and her out for good to a safer location. I can't thank this group and it's members enough. All of you and your family's have gained a special place in my heart. And I will pray for your safety each and every day. Will also be sharing this and trying to help as much as I can. Thank you all from the bottom of my heart and God bless you all. Angels from Heaven....
