You Want to Help DV Victims…..

…Sew?

If you know you’re way around a needle and thread, then these projects will be a breeze.

You can make a personal care kit, fleece throw blanket, or baby grab ball.

The personal care kit featured above is a great service project for a church group, school group, or girl scout project. Fill with personal care items women and children can use in the Family Violence Center’s shelter. Your craft will be a special gift to a family battling domestic violence, and will help our program save money on these items.

If you decide to get crafty and create any of these gift items, you can deliver them to Partnership’s office at 1800 McCallie Avenue in Chattanooga. Questions? Email info@partnershipfca.com.

Remember My Name,  a ceremony to bring awareness to the victims of Domestic Violence, will be held on October 15, 2012 at 12:00 p.m. at the Hamilton County/Chattanooga Courts Building.  In the ceremony, that kicks off Partnership’s month long Domestic Violence Awareness campaign “Stop Violence Give Hope”, Mayor Jim Coppinger, will proclaim October as Domestic Violence Awareness Month and will read the names of victims that have lost their lives to domestic violence. Kathy C., a survivor of domestic violence, will tell her story of the horrors of living with an abuser, and the courage it took to leave. The ceremony will honor, and pay tribute to victims and survivors of domestic violence.
