It’s the last day of Idaho Gives: With an increase in calls related to domestic violence, here’s how you can help.

Today is the last day of the Idaho Gives campaign organized by the Idaho Nonprofit Center. The past two weeks have highlighted just how generous the people of Idaho are with over $3,000,000 raised to support non-profits around the State.  We have used this opportunity to highlight the fantastic partners we have. We are humbled by the outpouring of support for our clients and we so very thankful for the other nonprofits in our area that help provide our clients with the tools and resources they need along their path to finding a life free from abuse and trauma.

Like us, so many local nonprofits have had to display unprecedented levels of grit and adaptability during the past few weeks and we are grateful for the continued opportunities to partner and get through this together. If you can, we hope that you will consider giving during the final day of Idaho Gives, in honor of these partnerships, but also to preserve our services during this global health crisis.

And, please continue to help us share our hotline number (208-343-7025) and the location of our Crisis Center (720 W. Washington Street, Boise) where our Court Advocates are ready to help individuals wanting to obtain a civil protection order in Ada County. Home is not always safe for everyone.

While the overall number of calls for the first quarter of this year is down slightly when compared to the first quarter of last year, the calls related to domestic violence issues have increased by 93%. And our overall calls for April 2020 are almost triple (194% increase) that of April 2019. As we continue on into May, it would appear that the trend in increased calls looks to be holding steady. The number of emergency intakes into shelter has also increased as compared with last year – and we expect that too will continue.

I am so very proud of our staff and our clients who have come together and looked at each day with new fresh eyes, rolled up their sleeves and have done everything that has been asked of them with grace and strength.

Thank you for all you do to help make our community safe. Idaho Gives is a wonderful way to give back and we are so grateful for those in our community who have shown their support by donating through this effort. There are many amazing nonprofits in the valley and across the state. So, if you have not already checked out the Idaho Gives website, I’d encourage you to do so before this great event ends at midnight tonight.
In Gratitude,

Bea
