Ending the Silence of Domestic Violence
Family violence costs the nation from $5 to $10 billion annually in medical expenses, police and court costs, shelters and foster care, sick leave, absenteeism and non-productivity.
When you support Laura's House you not only provide victims of domestic violence and their children with emergency shelter, you provide these families with the tools to build a new life. A life that is healthy, successful and free of violence. Nothing more than what each of us would want for our families. Laura's House is essential to improving the quality of life in Orange County, providing the services necessary to rebuild lives destroyed by violence.
Laura's House provides direct services to more than 2500 victims and their families each year through a 24-hour crisis hot line, emergency shelter, food and clothing, counseling, case management and legal services. Today, more than ever nonprofit organizations are facing severe financial challenges. As the economy has slowed and funding for services has been cut back, Laura's House depends on community support to help us meet the current needs of our clients, maintain our current level of quality services and grow our organization to meet our future needs.
