Charity Choice Monday – Dawn Rising – RealChange 64
Dawn Rising Quoted from its website:
“DAWN saves lives.
As the largest provider of comprehensive domestic abuse services in South King County, we offer an immediate refuge from violence, expert guidance so survivors can set goals and solve problems to find a permanent escape from danger, and hope for families to build a new future. In 2016, we served 4,437 women and children. We also help men who are victims of domestic violence.
Dawn believes that the people who come to us for help deserve to chart their own course for the future, so we do everything possible to guide them toward success. Our advocates don’t judge, scold or dictate. We respect each survivor’s unique strengths and individual experiences.
No barrier is too high for DAWN to serve someone in need. We have the expertise, patience and conviction to work with people affected by violence who do not speak English, who have mental health or substance abuse issues or whose devastating experiences with violence cause them to act out in angry or disruptive ways.”
Dawn Rising openly solicits gifts-in-kind for its shelter and vehicles as a fundraising system.
