Change a Life this May by Donating to EVA's Hope
During the month of May, the California Partnership is running a fundraising drive to raise funds for EVA's Hope -- a fund that provides emergency financial assistance to victims of domestic violence.Your contribution will make a huge difference for victims in need of emergency funding. Eighty percent of every dollar donated will directly support survivors of domestic violence. Shelters and other direct service organizations that are Partnership members will be able to apply to the Partnership on behalf of domestic violence survivors for an EVA's Hope grant of up to $500 per survivor. These grants can be used by survivors for expenses such as food, transportation costs, rent deposits, employment and education costs, or other unanticipated expenses incurred while escaping violence. Donate.
New Laws Webinar Materials Now Available!
Every year, new laws are passed in California which may potentially impact survivors and the programs that provide services to victims of domestic violence. To reduce any confusion about new laws and implementation, the Partnership offers a new laws training to describe these changes. The presentation and supporting materials, including the California Domestic Violence Law Compendium 2013, are now available on our website. You can access these materials by logging in to your account. Access Materials.
