The Gift of Empowerment

Many times victims of intimate partner violence have little or no control over how money is spent or how needs of the family are met.   They often have been trapped in an environment where they have little say over anything.  The Center believes that each person should get to make their own choices.  Survivors who get support to make informed decisions that best reflect their interests and needs feel empowered, and that is a huge step towards healing.    That is why during the holiday season we ask that supporters wanting to give gifts to The Center give gift cards. Survivors of intimate partner abuse and sexual violence have often been disempowered for a long period of time. The hope that comes along with being able to make decisions about which gifts will bring the most joy to your family is priceless.   Giving a $25 gift card to a box store such as Target, Meijer, Walmart or Kohl’s allows women to shop for their specific needs or wants.  It can give them a choice to shop from the safety of shelter online or to go on a group shopping trip to the store at a designated time.  Giving a gift card is truly giving the gift of empowerment.   The Center’s Gift Card Campaign runs from November 30 – December 23.  You can drop off donations at any area Republic Bank or at The Center for Women and Families.  Have questions?  Contact Jane White at 502-581-7209 or
