NOTE FROM OUR CO-CHAIRS

We are all aware of the troubling statistics regarding domestic violence that continue to grow annually. How many times in the last year have you looked up at the local news to hear a story of domestic violence or hear our director, Cheryl Branch, being interviewed after a domestic homicide?

But together we ARE making inroads! Through the continued efforts to raise awareness and, ultimately, break the cycle of violence, your support of SAFE Shelter provided a lifeline for 1,600 people in our community. Through sheltering, transitional housing or legal intervention SAFE Shelter makes an impact. With nearly 45 percent of all aggravated assault cases related to family violence, these victims transcend socioeconomic status, neighborhoods or age ranges and SAFE Shelter is there to assist in every facet of this epidemic.

More alarmingly, SAFE Shelter provided services to over 532 children last year. SAFE Shelter is literally a life changing place for these young displaced victims. Children in homes of domestic violence more likely to abuse drugs, commit a violent crime or commit suicide. Your contribution to SAFE Shelter makes an impact in our future by changing the trajectory of these young minds while we can still make a difference. That is why your donations are not used for glitzy marketing efforts or special awards but instead every dollar goes directly to services for the women and children. The Gala is one of the most important ways to ensure SAFE Shelter can continuing to provide these critical services, and it is FUN! 

The Sponsorship Levels for the 2019 Annual Giving Gala, to be held November 23rd, 2019 at the Plantation Club at the Landings on Skidaway Island (Savannah, GA). With future goals of additional satellite Outreach Centers, Awareness Seminars and Campaigns in our community, it’s imperative that the fundraising continue. For this year’s Giving Gala we will be offering more entertainment options in addition to our VIP happy hour and silent auction from year’s past by including a post auction After Glow Party!

Quite simply, we need your support and our community needs the SAFE Shelter. We cannot achieve these goals without YOU!  Please do not hesitate to reach out to me with any questions or concerns.

With abundant gratitude,

Katie Chancy and Jennifer Davenport
