I donor campaign has just begun and here is why you should make a contribution today…

In 2018, IMPACT served more than 945 people and provided more than $14,000 in donated services and financial support in the form of scholarships for women and girls.  Our programs prevent sexual assault, help survivors heal from trauma, and increase participants’ confidence and competence.  Isn’t that what we want for all the women and girls in our lives? 

You can help remove the financial barriers that keep women and girls from feeling safe. With even a small gift of $100 you can help us meet our goal of raising $5,000 by the end of October – which is National Domestic Violence Awareness Month. With your support, we will be able to provide 33 scholarships in 2019.

Please help more women and girls live life with more confidence and freedom!  Donate to IMPACT today

Make a donation to help us continue to make these programs available to everyone, regardless of ability to pay.  Safety should be a right, not a privilege…
