Caring Unlimited

2023 Goals

In 2023, we will continue to build and strengthen our core direct service programs and our prevention education programs to ensure survivors’ needs are met, programs are accessible to all members of our diverse community, and our community is empowered to support survivors.

  • Build: We offer support and individualized safety planning to more than 2,000 people annually – free of charge, 24 hours a day. We seek to increase our volunteer corps and create partnerships that increase our capacity and quality of response.
  • Strengthen: Our services support anyone who has been victimized in an intimate relationship. We recognize that people who are members of marginalized groups face more barriers to accessing support and experience higher rates of violence. We will provide programs that are welcoming, accessible and inclusive.
  • Educate: We work to change the conditions which allow domestic violence to persist. We will expand our prevention education programs throughout our community, particularly with youth and through increased collaboration with youth-serving organizations.
  • Empower: We recognize that the root of domestic violence is oppression and that all forms of oppression intersect. We will educate the community to know and understand how to support survivors and take action to end domestic violence.
