Your gift today will help make sure that violence and abuse won’t rob children of their futures tomorrow.
Safe Horizon’s Annual Back to School Backpack Drive helps children get the chance they urgently need to succeed in school. Each year, more than three million children like Mark witness violence in their homes. That violence disrupts their lives to the extent that they can’t focus on doing well in school.
Thanks to caring people like you, Mark ended up finishing the school year with good grades, all while receiving the counseling and support he needed to recover from his trauma at one of Safe Horizon’s nine domestic violence shelters.
