Thank you for visiting my fundraising page.
I am walking in support of Steps To End Domestic Violence, a Vermont non-profit working to provide support for victims of domestic abuse and violence. Steps has been serving Chittenden County, Vermont for 41 years. If you believe that all adults and children have the right to live without fear of abuse – sexual, physical, emotional, or financial, then please support Steps by sponsoring me.
Steps advocates for victims and survivors of domestic abuse and works to raise awareness in our community through outreach and education. They also identify where resources are needed in the community and collaborate with a wide network of community partners to plan and implement necessary initiatives to meet those needs.
With your help, last year, Steps provided needed services to 5,086 adults and children whose lives have been affected by domestic abuse, including 236 individuals provided with emergency housing. These individuals and families were able to access Steps programs at no cost to themselves. From Shelter to Relief from Abuse orders, Steps advocates are working side by side with victims and survivors to help them move toward safe, healthy and, empowered lives free from coercion, threats, and violence.
