RAINBOW HOUSE PLANS TO PROVIDE CELLULAR PHONE SERVICE PLANS TO SURVIVORS OF DOMESTIC ABUSE
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
September 30th, 2019
Rainbow House Domestic Abuse Services received $350 from the Women’s Giving Circle Endowment Fund held at the M&M Area Community Foundation. These funds will support survivors of domestic violence in being able to connect with essential services.
Many people donate used cell phones, with the understanding that these items support victims of domestic violence. While these phones help, without a service plan, the only number that can be dialed is 911. However, there are so many more resources that a survivor needs to access in order to develop safety long-term. For example, victims of domestic violence may need to establish and maintain contact with community support, healthcare providers, the court system, attorneys, schools, employers, and Rainbow House.
“We are grateful to the M&M Community Foundation Women’s Giving Circle for providing this funding, as it will purchase ten thirty-day unlimited data plans to survivors of domestic violence”, says Jessica Honish, Lead Advocate.
Our mission is simple. We believe: No one deserves to be abused be it emotionally, physically, or sexually. Our prime service is the safety and empowerment of all victims and their children.
We Will: Provide prevention, education, and information to communities, families, and schools.
If you would like to support our efforts to break the cycle of domestic violence, please call our shelter at (715) 735-6656 or visit us online at https://therainbowhouse.us/. Our 24/7 services are free and confidential.
