The annual United Way Campaign raises money for 14 Partner Agencies in Lincoln County, including the Lincoln County Coalition Against Domestic Violence!
We all know Domestic Violence takes place, but if it doesn’t directly affect us, we spend little time thinking about it and almost no time talking about it. We should know that those in our community who live with it are almost unable to think about anything else! They may be in constant fear for their lives, may think that they are the only ones having to live like “this” and don’t know how to talk about it or how to get help.
Your donation to the 2020/2021 UWLC Campaign WILL HELP SAVE LIVES!
The Lincoln County Coalition Against Domestic Violence (LCCADV), whose Shelter operates locally as Amy’s House and whose volunteers operate in two locations (Lincolnton and Denver) at Amy’s Closet are working non-stop to provide clothing and other essentials to families who often have to leave a violent incident with nothing more than the clothes on their backs. Amy’s House is available at 704-736-1224; on Facebook @LincolnCountyCADV; and on the internet at lincolncounty-cadv.org. Besides emergency shelter, food and other essentials, the LCCADV staff provides legal advocacy, connection to counselling, support groups, information on financial management, job search, resume writing, job interviewing, housing referrals and other supportive actions to enable survivors to achieve a safe home for themselves and their family.
This great work depends on your help. Victims of Domestic Violence depend on your contribution!
