It Takes a Community

Dear Friends,

It takes a community to overcome the effects of domestic violence.

You know that Sheltering Wings plays an important role, but we couldn’t transform the lives of women and children escaping domestic violence without a coordinated community response.

That response includes a collaborative effort involving law enforcement agencies, healthcare providers, the judicial system, schools and other educational organizations, churches, and many others. We all work together to address the many needs of victims as they restore and rebuild their lives, replacing fear with hope.

It also includes you. You have the power to educate others around you about domestic violence’s impact. You can respond to friends and others who make uninformed statements or brush domestic violence off as somebody else’s business.

And most of all, you can help someone in an abusive situation obtain help. A good place to start is our 24-hour Help Line at 317-745-1496.

Thank you for your continued prayerful support of the work we do on behalf of women and children, and for being part of a community effort to eliminate domestic violence.

Abiding in Him,

Cassie Martin Signature
