Happy Thanksgiving from the National Network to End Domestic Violence!
As we all come together with those closest to us and give thanks, please don't forget the thousands of survivors and their children who are without a safe home this holiday season. For those of us who live in violence-free homes, Thanksgiving is a time where we can relax and be ourselves among those we love. For survivors of domestic violence, "home" often means something more precarious.
NNEDV is working to eliminate barriers to housing for survivors through federal policy and systems advocacy. We're on the ground working with local programs across the country to improve transitional housing services for survivors, so they can move out of shelter and into a home of their own. We're also on Capitol Hill, crafting survivor-centered federal public policy and serving as a voice for survivors and advocates by amplifying and giving voice to survivors' safe housing needs and concerns. Join us in our work to make every home a safe home.
We believe #SurvivorsDeserve safe housing. Every day, we're working to create survivor-centered systems that will support and protect thousands of brave survivors. We hope you'll stand with us.
Thanks from all of us at NNEDV.
For Peace and Safety,
Cindy Southworth Executive Vice President and Interim CEO
