Thank you for your support of New Beginning Center where life without domestic violence begins.
Domestic violence programs are experiencing funding cuts or reductions from multiple sources.
In a recent survey of NNEDV’s 56 member state and territorial coalitions against domestic violence, 69% reported that domestic violence programs experienced overall funding decreases.
Almost 80% of states reported that their programs were experiencing cuts or reduction in funding from local county and city sources.
Approximately 90% of states reported that their programs were seeing decreases in private donations.
Increase in Demand: At the same time that funding is decreasing, programs across the country are seeing an increase in demand for services. In NNEDV’s funding survey, 88% of state and territorial coalitions reported that domestic violence programs have recently experienced an increase in requests. When coupled with the decrease in funding, this creates an unconscionable gap in services.
But, the one-day survey also shows that over 1,300 requests for domestic violence services were unmet because local programs were unable to provide services because there was not enough funding or staff to handle the requests for services. Nearly 40 percent of those requests were for housing.Your gift helps us provide quality staff, excellent services and a wide range of educational opportunities both within our facility and throughout our local community.
