W.H.O. Foundation Award Recipient
On August 13th, SCVP (Madeline’s House/ Piedmont Crisis Center) was awarded $12,000 in grant funds from the W.H.O. Foundation (Women Helping Others). These funds will be used to assist in providing direct services to our victims of domestic and sexual violence. This award was made possible by a SCVP volunteer and BeautiControl consultant Sue Pasko.
BeautiControl consultants across the U.S. raise monies and make donations so that the W.H.O. Foundation can make yearly awards to non-profit agencies working with women, children and families.
A SPECIAL THANK YOU to Sue Pasko for working to help Madeline’s House/ Piedmont Crisis Center get this award.
Madeline’s House Opens Satellite Offices
Madeline’s House has established eleven satellite offices throughout its 12 county service area. This outreach initiative will enable victims of domestic and sexual violence in this predominantly rural area to have easier access to critical services. Currently satellite offices are located in 6 strategically chosen counties allowing the greatest access to everyone in this very large service area. Future plans are to have at least one satellite office in all 12 counties.
Among services offered at these satellite offices are: personal case management and individual supportive counseling, safety planning, victim / court advocacy, assistance with obtaining protective orders and document recovery, life skills assessment and training options, assistance with job and house searches, assistance in seeking appropriate legal and medical counsel, information and referral assistance, and arrangements for sheltering if needed. All services are free and no appointment is needed. Call 1.888.819.2926 for location and satellite office hours.
Madeline’s House will continue serving victims of violence at its shelter location as it has done for 14 years. This new satellite office program is just one more way victims of abuse can reach out for help.
In addition to this new outreach effort, presentations and workshops remain available to community and professional groups. If your group would like to schedule a presentation or workshop, or if you have a personal question, call our office at 434.292.1077 or 1.888.819.2926. Our professional staff are trained and certified in many areas related to domestic and sexual violence.
