We Need Your Support
April is Sexual Assault Awareness and Child Abuse Prevention Month. In recognition, HCWC is introducing our month-long Listen Believe Support Campaign.
Our goal is to raise a total of $50,000 for services to support members of the community who have experienced violence and abuse.
Throughout the month of April, we will be sharing content across all of our social media platforms as well as hosting online events as we ask the community to come together for this important cause.
We encourage our allies to participate and share our message with their friends and relatives to LISTEN with an open heart, BELIEVE fully, and SUPPORT our neighbors that have experienced abuse with both our words and our wallets!
