the project

For over a year, Restoration Time Family and Youth Services has been working with victims of domestic violence in Memphis, Tennessee.  During this time, we have served over 500 individuals.  We have provided emergency shelter, food, transportation, and job referrals.   Now, we are attempting to enhance our capacity to serve even more victims.  Through this project, we hope to hire additional staff and cover operational costs as we try to meet the needs of the victims that we serve.

the steps

1.  Hire additional staff by September 30, 2018.

2. Create fund for operational costs (transportation, meals, lodging) by September 30, 2018.

why we're doing it

Domestic violence is one of the most pressing social problems in the mid-south.  In 2017 alone, there were nearly 3000 reported cases of domestic violence.  Statistically, 1 in 4 women will suffer some form of domestic violence during their lifetime.  That's a greater number of women than the number of women affected by breast cancer, ovarian cancer, and lung cancer combined.  Sadly, many of these cases are never reported and many victims never seek help.

When these victims do seek help, they often need assistance with the basics of life- food, shelter, clothing, and medical attention.  We seek to meet the immediate needs of these victims, while also providing them with long-term support as they try to rebuild their lives.
