For over 30 years, Cities 97.1 has been dedicated to helping Local MN Charities and it’s no different in 2022.
This month as part of Cities Gives Back, we recognize Women’s Advocates. Women's Advocates provides domestic violence victim-survivors and their children safe shelter, childcare, and paths to safe, stable housing in the community away from their abuser.
Women's Advocates is part of Twin Cities history. In 1974, it was founded as the first shelter in the nation for victim-survivors of domestic violence.
Today, Women's Advocates serves 7500 individuals every year who are fleeing abusive situations and this October for Domestic Violence Awareness Month, Women's Advocates is raising $150,000 to help provide safe, stable housing to unhoused victim-survivors of domestic violence. If you or a loved one are in an abusive situation, if you are scared, or have any questions, please call Women's Advocates Crisis Line at 651-227-8284 and head to https://www.wadvocates.org/donate-today/ to make a donation today.
