How To Help

Give the Gift of Hope This Holiday Season!

The Gift of Hope 

Last year, Fort Bend Women’s Center served 1,758 survivors and children, answered 4,692 Crisis Hotline Calls, and provided 6,791 hours of Counseling, thanks to supporters like YOU! You make it possible to provide safety, basic needs, and life-changing programs including counseling, child mentoring, housing assistance, case management and legal assistance, among others for survivors of domestic violence & sexual assault and their children.

Domestic violence is more likely to occur when stress levels are high.

This holiday season, domestic violence victims are still struggling with the effects of the pandemic, in addition to holiday stress created by financial pressures, increased consumption of alcohol and more at-home time with abusers. The holidays are especially concerning as children may be exposed to the violence. The effects of childhood domestic violence can be brain-altering. It can lead to depression, anxiety, antisocial behavior, substance abuse, developmental delays, and may lead to future abusive dating relationships. While the parent is healing, our children’s programs focus on increasing a child’s sense of safety, self-esteem, respect for others, social skills, and control over their own life. They are our “hope for the future” because real change begins with them!

Please consider giving the gift of hope to these families. Your gift will help adult and child survivors succeed in building independent lives, free of abuse. When a victim finally finds the courage to make that phone call, their hope for the future begins!
