Individual financial support is vital to our continued ability to provide services above and beyond the status quo. We rely on private, individual support to ensure the continued success of our unique program opportunities, for example WIR’s Women’s Empowerment Program, focusing on the prevention of and recovery from incidences of domestic and family violence. Your support also ensures that we are able to promote and expand innovative service models like the True Colors Residence.
