Bethany House of Northern Virginia is teaming up with Unique Thrift Store located at 2956 Gallows Road, Falls Church, VA to benefit women and children who are suffering from domestic violence. You can be a part of the solution by taking donations of clothing and household items to Unique Thrift Store every Friday, Saturday or Sunday. Please tell the good people at Unique that your donation is for Bethany House, and they will make a donation to BHNV for each donation that is given in our name. For more information, please contact Brad Womble at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 703-658-9500.
Each year, the number of women and children seeking refuge in our emergency shelters for domestic violence victims is growing. Last fiscal year, BHNV provided safe and confidential shelter to 47 families escaping abusive homes, an increase from 42 families in FY 12-13 and just 39 families in FY 11-12.
Unfortunately, due to space limitations, we are forced to turn away scores of vulnerable women and children in desperate need of safety and support. These victims often face the unthinkable choice of becoming homeless or returning to their abuser.
To address this growing and critical need for shelter and services, BHNV has initiated its Raise the Roof! Capital Campaign to renovate and expand its oldest emergency shelter. The renovation will nearly double our capacity to house victims of domestic violence and will ensure a safe and comfortable home for women to rebuild their lives. The expanded facility will allow us to better serve victims of domestic violence in Fairfax County – a community where 33% of homeless families are homeless due to domestic violence – and surrounding Northern Virginia and DC metro communities.
We hope you will support our Capital Campaign. Your gift will ensure that individuals affected by domestic abuse in our community receive the best possible services to heal and move forward with their lives.
