Leaving an abusive relationship is more than just emotionally difficult. Many women who use our services leave behind everything they own just to escape. By donating, you’ll help us provide basic needs of the survivors we serve. You’ll also make sure Martha’s House is open for business and properly staffed 24hrs a day 365 days a year.We can only continue to provide these services and helps through the generosity of the community’s financial support. Please consider a monetary donation today.

Become a Martha's House Monthly Donor & help keep us going 🙂 >>> www.marthashouse.org/become-monthly-donor/

Here is some information on becoming a Monthly Donor & Why it is so helpful to our local org & cause:

• How will monthly donations help Matha’s House keep going & why are donations needed?
Your donation helps Martha’s House operate its 24 bed shelter with everyday needs. And for every dollar we raise we often get $4 in matching grants. Its a great way to boost your support. Without local support we can’t apply.

• Where will Martha’s House monthly donations go for our local needs and what items do we need most?
We don’t know how many people will be with us at any time so we always need to be prepared to buy enough fresh fruits, vegetables, meats, and dairy, bath towels, pillows, and bedding (these things get worn out very quickly), and to pay the electric bill. We also relocate victims of violence when even staying with us isn’t safe enough at our expense.

• How will these donations help Okeechobee?
Okeechobee has high rates of family violence. And there is no other victims’ services program within 45 miles. We also work closely with the schools, businesses, and other agencies to educate and hopefully prevent domestic violence.

• What top overall causes will be helped nationwide?
Domestic violence affects 1 in 4 women nationally. It’s an epidemic. The answer is serving each victim one at a time, and teaching non-violence one young person at a time. Then we will change the national picture.

 Martha’s House Domestic Violence Shelter and the Florida Coalition Against Domestic Violence (FCADV) teamed up to develop the Chobee Courage Project and the Your Courage Project curriculum. The purpose of these programs were to encourage boys that were mentored to take a stand against violence against women and girls through non-violent bystander intervention.
