We have known for a long time that domestic violence can affect anyone; it occurs in families from all ethnic backgrounds, from all socio economic groups and from all faiths. No one is immune.

Will this ever change? I believe so. As individuals we need to make it known that violence against women is not acceptable. Women in abusive relationships need support. How people respond to women in these situations is critical. By and large, women do not initially go to police or social services – they talk to friends and family. And if they do not get a response, it sets them back. So everybody can take responsibility for making a positive difference in the lives of women and children in need. If you are ever faced with someone who needs support, you can play a major role by telling a friend or family member in need of our services about us. Support the work of House of Ruth with your time, resources and talent.

One of my favorite quotes is by Anne Frank. She said, “How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world”.
Together, we can make a huge difference in the lives of others and in our communities. Partner with us as we agree to positively change the lives of women and children- one family at a time.

With warm regards,
Sue Aebischer
Executive Director
