Celebration of Service and Survival
Join us on Saturday, March 11, 2023 at the Mellwood Art Center to celebrate survivors of domestic and sexual violence and recognize five Women of Distinction and the Nolen C. Allen Man of Distinction for their service to our community.
Our annual Celebration of Service & Survival raises funds and awareness that support our free, 24-hour services in nine Kentuckiana counties. Our comprehensive programs address intimate partner violence, sexual violence, and economic hardship through emergency services, legal and medical advocacy, counseling, economic empowerment and housing assistance, and prevention education.
Dress to impress; cocktail attire recommended.

New items will be added regularly, so check back often.
