Dan Start-Up Fund, Women & Abuse Program
Abuse of women and children is an issue that cuts across all socio-economic barriers, ethnicities, professions and religious groups. The Jewish Family & Child Woman Abuse Program looks to provide a full range of services to help women access the assistance they need to remove themselves and their children from dangerous circumstances and get the proper supports to help them move forward. The services include crisis intervention, counselling, advocacy and community outreach services, education and referrals to other professionals. It takes constant vigilance to confront this shocking issue, and AMDF is determined to provide the support that will contribute towards its prevention.
“The money that the foundation provides to this program is lifesaving. The Dan Start-Up Fund helps women who have left an abusive relationship find hope when they have none”
