We hope that you will join us at The 28th Celebration of Service and Survival on February 26, 2014. The Center for Women and Families largest fundraising event included dinner, silent and live auctions as well as a raffle. We will also honor the 2015 Women of Distinction - five women who have made countless contributions to the community. This year the honorees are: Pat Byron, Dawne Gee, Dr. Carol Jordan, Secretary Audrey Tayse Haynes and Dorothy Ridings. Since 1988, this celebration has honored more than 100 Women of Distinction as a way of supporting our mission to provide survivors of intimate partner violence and sexual assault opportunities to transform their lives, and as a result, the lives of their families and communities. The Center for Women and Families offers inclusive, multicultural services free of charge 24 hours a day, 365 days a year throughout seven Kentucky Counties and two Indiana counties. Our integrated programs address domestic violence, sexual violence and economic hardship through emergency services, legal and medical advocacy, counseling, economic empowerment and housing assistance, and prevention education.
