Fathers for Hope- Men for Change 2024

The Fathers for Hope-Men for Change campaign supports initiatives designed to unite men in our community to take a stand against domestic violence. At Domestic Violence Shelter and Services, Inc., it is our mission to work towards the elimination of domestic violence and the support of the men in our community is vital to make that a reality. We are so grateful for these companies, organizations, individuals and their loved ones who have made the commitment to stop the cycle of violence before it starts. Everyone has a right to feel safe, empowered, and be free from the threat of violence.
