Friendship Home (www.friendshiphome.org) is proud to announce their 20th annual Safe Quarters was a huge success! Safe Quarters is a one-day, communitywide effort to raise funds and awareness of domestic violence in Lincoln and Lancaster County. Funds collected provide a safe, confidential shelter, crisis services, and ongoing support for families who are rebuilding their lives free from violence. Safe Quarters is vital to Friendship Home’s doors remaining open to those in need.
During Safe Quarters, which took place on October 9, Friendship Home had teams of dedicated volunteers going door-to-door collecting financial contributions from houses in the Lincoln and neighboring communities. Volunteers were equipped with collection buckets and informational materials about Friendship Home and domestic violence.
This year’s event raised $85,715. Thanks to the dedication of many volunteers and sponsors. Safe Quarters is truly a community-wide effort, and the results show how generous our community is in helping to empower freedom from domestic violence.
Friendship Home provides crisis services, emergency shelter, and transitional housing to victims of domestic violence and their children. If you, or someone you know, is experience domestic violence, please call Friendship Home’s 24/7 crisis line at (402) 437-9302. To learn more, visit www.friendshiphome.org.
