Safe Haven for Survivors
Since 1996, American Savings Foundation has awarded over $1.4 million to the prevention of domestic violence.
In 2020, the pandemic and stay-at-home guidelines shed a light on the immense need for domestic violence services. Prudence Crandall Center saw a 40% increase in need for counseling services, and at one point their emergency shelter reached 250% capacity.
To help meet the need and elevate the financial challenges of non-profits in the community, American Savings Foundations was able to increase awards to basic need services in both 2020 and 2021. For Prudence Crandall Center, the increased awards helped support critical needs for services for children, and support staffing to address the staggering increase in need during the pandemic and continuing to this day.
