PhilanthropyFiles PhotoPhilanthropy – derived from Greek, means “love of humanity, in the sense of caring, nourishing, developing, and enhancing what it means to be human.” As we enter Domestic Violence Awareness Month (#DVAM), I think of that definition with awe and gratitude. In my six months as Philanthropy Manger at the WCA, I’ve been fortunate to see the best of our community: neighbors helping neighbors because they believe we should all live in a community where individuals thrive in safe, healthy relationships.  In sharp contrast to what I see firsthand in working with our donors, our friends at Ada County Paramedics see a very different side of our community. Every day they see broken homes and broken lives due to domestic violence.

The philanthropy – the love of humanity – our donors, volunteers and community partners share with our clients is truly life saving. Because of you, our specially trained Children’s Therapists help kids make sense of what has happened in their young lives and stop the cycle of violence in their own lives. Because of you, moms have a safe place to begin the healing journey to healthy relationships. Because of you, thousands of our neighbors are able to navigate the court system and receive the legal protection they need.

It’s my privilege to be a part of this great organization and work closely with so many generous people who share this “love of humanity.”
