This event is one of the fundraisers of Friends and Neighbors of Every Woman’s House. Funds are raised by event participation, donations, and tee and green sponsorships. All monies raised go directly to Every Woman’s House. Last year, the golf scramble benefit raised more than $13,000 for this important cause.
Friends and Neighbors of Every Woman’s House is supported by more than 500 members, with membership open to anyone in the community. This group provides funds for Every Woman’s House (EWH), promotes public awareness of the EWH emergency shelter, and sponsors shelter programs.
Every Woman’s House is the only domestic violence shelter serving Wayne and Holmes counties. In addition to offering 24-hour emergency shelter, Every Woman’s House provides individual and group counseling for adults and children, advocacy and victims’ assistance, a 24-hour toll-free helpline, community education, and referral services. Every Woman’s House’s work to promote healthy, non-violent families in our community is essential to the well-being of the community.
Last year, Every Woman’s House counseled 224 adults and 131 children, provided advocacy services to 344 individuals, and sheltered 99 women and 104 children for an average stay of 31.6 days, totaling 6,421 days. This year, there has been an increase in services provided, stressing the importance of this organization in the community.
