I have chosen New Horizons, a shelter for victims of domestic violence as a way of giving back to the community. As of 2018, I am donating a portion of my annual profits from my jewelry
sales to this local organization. I chose them
because there is someone near and dear to my heart who suffered domestic abuse. I didn't know about it until she had gotten up the courage to leave.
New Horizons is a shelter for individuals and families who have experienced domestic violence. They now provide shelter and services to seven counties in Wisconsin. They have staff on duty 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year. The victims are provided with shelter, clothing, personal items, and food donated by the community. Often times, they leave with just the clothes they are wearing. New Horizons also provides the following services to help the victims and their families rebuild their lives.
- 24 Hour Crisis Line
