REALTORS® Community Foundation Awards Funds to Women’s and Children’s Alliance

Boise, ID – The Women’s and Children’s Alliance (WCA) has been awarded a grant of $2,500 from the REALTORS® Community Foundation. The funds will be used to sustain emergency and transitional shelters for victims fleeing domestic a2018-Grant-Reception-WCA-Boise Realtorsnd/or sexual violence.

The National Coalition for the Homeless notes that a woman is 70 times more likely to be murdered in the few weeks after leaving her abusive partner than at any other time in the relationship. In the past fiscal year, over 2,300 individuals have benefitted from over 50,400 services—including 13,197 safe bed nights in the WCA’s emergency and transitional shelters.

“Leaving an abusive relationship is not easy and, on average, it takes a victim seven times to leave before staying away for good,” said Bev La Chance, Deputy Director for the WCA. “We are so grateful for the support of the REALTORS® Community Foundation and the safe shelter and holistic services it allows us to provide for those most vulnerable in our community.”

“Real estate professionals are passionate about the communities in which they live and work,” said Kim Daley, Foundation President and Business Development Officer with Stewart Title. “It’s so rewarding to be able to help people with their housing needs by supporting these outstanding organizations.”

In addition to emergency shelter and transitional housing, the WCA offers counseling, case management, court advocacy, life skills classes, financial education, and a variety of other integrated services and programs to women, men and children victimized by abuse.
