As we get ready for the holiday’s and approach the end of 2015, more and more victims are dying to the hands of domestic violence because they were trying to get out. We would like to share a project to let those victims and survivors know that there is a safe way out. We do not want anyone trying to risk there life if it is not safe to leave but to be safe when you are ready.
Sometimes family and friends leave the victims with no other choices then to stay in that situation because they do not want to get involved. That is not in every case because sometimes the victim is too shame to let anyone know what they are going through until it is too late. There could be children involved between the partners. No one knows what that victim is going through and why they have stayed so long but when they are ready to take that step to get out we need to have a safe place for them to go.
Let me share a short story of a victim that did not survive. “Karen Holmes, 22, was a victim of domestic violence. After making the choice to leave an abusive relationship, she went back for a few things. During that time her ex-boyfriend selfishly and brutally took her life.”
These type of story is happening every day. There is a message to someone that might be going through this type of abusive relationship. You are not alone.
Everyone deserves a violence-free life. SafeNight is a mobile app that alerts individual donors to fund hotel rooms when local domestic violence shelters are full. Agencies use a web-based tool to send a request for emergency funding and donors receive an opportunity to pay via SafeNight. That is what S.T.A.O Radio Show aims to do and that is to provide a SafeNight.
S.T.A.O Radio Show is helping and you can help them save a life too.
You can donate a safe night for a survivor in need. When an individual is in urgent need of shelter, a qualified staff member at a domestic violence service organization can initiate a request for hotel room funding. STAO Radio Show who has downloaded SafeNight app will receive a notification that an individual is in need and have an opportunity to immediately cover the cost of the hotel room.
This project is dear to STAO Radio Show and they just want to see a family safe from violence this holiday season. They believe in raising awareness to domestic violence and they will not stop helping victims feel safe and that they can live again.
Help make a difference by sharing SafeNight with your friends, family, and colleagues. We can do this one family at a time. Domestic violence is a term that covers many types of acts committed by a current or former intimate partner against another, or within a family. It can take the form of physical violence, sexual abuse, emotional or psychological abuse, financial abuse, or other controlling behavior. It can include threats, such as threatening to commit suicide or take the children away from the victim. Victims of domestic violence can be of any age, racial or cultural background, education level, financial level, religion, gender, or sexual orientation. Let us help them once they make that first step to get out is to feel safe for at least one night for the rest of their lives.
STAO Radio Show would love to invite US-based 501(c)(3) and tribal organizations who are receiving funding for sheltering services to domestic violence survivors to join SafeNight. They would love to bring SafeNight to your city.
