FVPS Donation Drive For Women & Children
In this year’s “Changing Lives, Donation Drive” we, at Coldwell Banker D’Ann Harper, REALTORS®, strive to continue our efforts in giving back to the community. This year-long opportunity to give back is designed to allow an open door for those who would like to get involved. Semi-annually (July and February) we will have scheduled pick-ups through Family Violence Prevention Services to donate the most urgently needed items.
Family Violence Prevention Services has operated since 1977. Their mission is to break the cycle of violence and to strengthen families by providing the necessary tools for self-sufficiency through delivery of emergency shelter, transitional housing, education, effective parenting education, and specialized intervention with youth and the elderly. They serve more than 8,000 adults and children each year.
“Families are our society’s most basic and important unit. All things impacting our society have their genesis in the family. FVPS has the incredible and rewarding responsibility to serve families and coordinate with our community to deliver services that mend the body, restore the spirit, and help each person recognize their worth. Reaching out to people of all ages and backgrounds, educating our community about domestic violence, and offering comprehensive programs that support long-term change is what we do. Our work with children is some of the most critical, as it is with them that the best chance exists to reduce domestic violence for generations to come.”
