Hello Friends of RESOLVE,

Happy summer to all of you! I hope this message finds you well, safe and healthy.

There has been a lot of activity here at RESOLVE that we wanted to share with all of our supporters and partners. First off, a big THANK YOU to all of you who gave to our COVID-19 appeal. We raised over $15,000 thanks to your generosity! For those of you who would still like to donate, you can click here . We have seen a 40% increase in services since COVID-19 and your support has been instrumental in providing clients cutting-edge treatment.

We're growing (thanks to your support)! This month we welcomed full-time therapist, Carly Ianuzzi, to our staff which now makes us a total of six staff members, three full-time, three part-time. Carly comes to us with a wealth of knowledge in trauma treatment and Domestic Violence work, and is even trained in trauma-informed, therapeutic yoga!
As you all know, 2020 has been a year to remember on so many fronts with many challenges facing us medically, socially and personally. Between COVID-19 and the anti-racism movement we are experiencing something unprecedented. Sheltering in place, stay at home orders, quarantining----all of those factors caused a significant increase across the country, state, and community when it comes to Intimate Partner Violence. Many of our clients have expressed an increase in stress, anxiety, and depression. However, some clients are seeing this as an opportunity to leave an abusive relationship which is life changing!

With the Black Lives Matter Movement, we are doing our own internal exploration and have talked about how we can best serve our community--all of our community--and have an opportunity to do some innovative programming, among other things, knowing that we need to do better to be better . More on that in the near future.

Finally, due to COVID-19, we have made the difficult but necessary decision to cancel our 2020 Resolutionary Breakfast Awards and reschedule for April 2021. Please save the date of Tuesday, April 20, 2021 at Monroe Golf Club . We will still honor the same award recipients since we did not have a chance to celebrate together. If you have purchased a ticket, a table, or sponsored the event, we will hold that for you til next Spring and look forward to being together.

We cannot thank you enough for what you have done and continue to do for this “small but mighty” agency fighting Domestic Violence every day in our community. 

Be safe, be well, be kind.

With tremendous gratitude,
Mary
