You can help is meet the increasing need for services
Even though the luncheon is cancelled the call to support Compass Center remains. Compass Center's 24-hour domestic violence hotline continues to help clients safety plan, find shelter, and access other badly-needed resources. Staff continue to help survivors file Domestic Violence Protective Orders, and provide over the phone financial and career coaching for those in financial distress.
March saw a significant rise in the need for domestic violence crisis services. They served 15% more domestic violence services clients in March 2020 as compared to March 2019. Even more notable, staff received a 116% increase in requests for emergency housing related to domestic violence. The team anticipates this increasing need for services to continue, and are working hard to make sure our community has access to services.
If you're new to Compass Center's mission, here's a link to the video played at last year's luncheon to give you an idea about their community impact.
Lastly, Compass Center is honoring the day by debuting a new webpage with videos from local leaders and announcing the first winner of the Jennifer Dubow Volunteer of the Year award. I will forward you the link the morning of April 21st.
Despite not attending the luncheon please consider making a donation to Compass Center. Your support will make a significant impact.
