First 100 Plus Class of 2022
Thank you to all who were able to
join us and support CCADV's 11th Annual
First 100 Plus Breakfast & Awards Ceremony!
You helped us create another memorable morning, recognizing nearly 100 individuals leading efforts across the state to improve outcomes for survivors and their children. As the state's leading voice for survivors of domestic violence and those organizations that serve them, we recognize that we cannot make progress alone. It is the work that each of you does to help survivors when they are at their most vulnerable that truly bolsters our collective impact.
We have had many victories in our efforts to strengthen the state's response to domestic violence and money raised through the First 100 Plus Breakfast & Awards Ceremony will help to sustain that work. Your donation supports increased public awareness about the lifesaving services available through the state's domestic violence resource hub, Safe Connect, and at each of our 18 member organizations. While our coalition serves nearly 40,000 adults and children annually, we know that there is much work to be done to extend our reach to underserved communities. We know that we must do more to ensure that every survivor, no matter where they live or what language they speak, knows that support is just one call, text, chat or email away.
Your generosity also helps us meet some of the emergency needs that survivors often experience, many of which have been exacerbated during the pandemic. Whether it's supporting our members with significant hoteling costs, providing a bus ticket so that a survivor can get to a safer place, or buying a home security system to give a survivor peace of mind, your donation helps to support survivors at some of their most vulnerable times. We can’t do it without you! Thank you!
