Empowerhouse Empty Bowl 

Please join us on January 26, 2020 at our annual Empty Bowl event to benefit Empowerhouse and survivors of domestic violence in our community. Tickets are available for $60 per person.

Here are some of the ways your support can help survivors find hope and healing on their journey to safety and dignity:

  • $45 – One victim of domestic violence and her children can begin their journey from fear and isolation to freedom by calling the Empowerhouse 24-hour hotline and starting their safety plan with an advocate
  • $80 – One night of shelter and services for a client and a child to stay at the Haven Shelter  
  • $200 – One client can access the 24-hour hotline and then complete a cycle of education support groups to aid in the recovery from domestic violence and help them to achieve hope and freedom (3 months or longer)
  • $210 – Pays for a child to attend the weekly Forgotten Victims education support group (3 months or longer)
  • $275 – Prevention: to educate one class at area elementary, middle, or high school with a presentation on teen dating violence and healthy relationships
  • $340 – Supports one domestic violence victim through the civil or criminal court system (the duration of this process may be months and sometimes years).
  • $675 – The entire stay and services at our domestic violence shelter for a child exposed to domestic violence while accompanying their parent (Average stay is 1 month)
  • $1,000 – Pays for a survivor of domestic violence to be safely sheltered, to obtain a protective order and return home
  • $1,500 – Pays for shelter and services to support one family to obtain safety during their shelter stay and move toward independence
  • $4,000 – Helps us to move one family experiencing domestic violence into their own housing, an initiative toward sustaining them with services and rental subsidies until they achieve financial stability and function independently of charitable community support
