To address emergency needs during the COVID-19 pandemic, we are honored to share with you our rapid-response fundraising effort, SAFETY FIRST FOR WOMEN FUND.
It will allow us to shift resources and attention to two of the biggest needs facing women across Maine today, domestic violence and the needs of direct care workers.
The SAFETY FIRST FOR WOMEN FUND will provide immediate:
1) Support to organizations and families experiencing increased Domestic Violence (DV rates are surging globally) with a grant to Maine Coalition to End Domestic Violence to distribute directly to their nine member organizations, and to the Wabanaki Women's Coalition to distribute directly to their five tribal government member agencies; and
2) Advocacy for policy change that supports the needs of Direct Care workers through a grant to Maine Council on Aging, including working with State and Federal leaders to improve access to personal protective equipment (PPE) and COVID-19 testing, while quickly building out the existing workforce.
Please join us in standing with women greatly impacted by this pandemic!
