Dear Supporter,

October’s Domestic Violence Awareness Month (DVAM) may be nearly over, but survivors need your advocacy and support every day of the year. Earlier this month, I reached out to you about the National Network to End Domestic Violence’s (NNEDV) goal of gaining 30 new monthly donors during DVAM. Can you join us by becoming a monthly donor before the month is over?

Our 14th annual Domestic Violence Counts Report showed that in a 24-hour period, more than 77,000 adults and children reached out to their local domestic violence program for support.


“A survivor wrote our staff a letter, saying, ‘I can always count on your help and smiles. You have played a big part in my transformation, from a woman running and hiding to an independent, hard-working woman. I owe you my life. I am thankful from the bottom of my heart.’”

- Oklahoma Advocate, 14th Annual Domestic Violence Counts Report


While all survivors deserve access to resources that will help them find safety, for many, those resources are often out of reach.  Our Domestic Violence Counts Report also showed that, tragically, in the same day there were more than 11,000 unmet requests due to lack of resources. 

By becoming a monthly donor, you will support our work of responding to survivors’ diverse needs, particularly as we navigate the ongoing pandemic. In these uncertain times, coming together to support the most vulnerable in our communities is essential. If you cannot commit to a monthly donation, you can still show support by making a one time donation.

When survivors get access to the resources they need to rebuild after abuse, they thrive. That’s why we must work together to ensure that when a victim reaches out to a domestic violence program for help, they will not be turned away. Please consider donating to support our work to create survivor-centered federal public policy, transform local and state systems, and bring awareness to the barriers that exist between survivors and safety. 

Thank you for joining us in this work during DVAM and beyond.

   With gratitude,
   Deborah J. Vagins
   NNEDV President and CEO
