Since its inception PRESENT NOW has raised over $1.5 million to support children living in transitional domestic violence shelters.
- 45 million children will be exposed to violence in the US.
- On a typical day, there are more than 20,000 phone calls placed to domestic violence hotlines nationwide.
- Survivors of domestic violence often must flee their homes to escape life-threatening violence. When they do they leave everything behind.
- PRESENT NOW is dedicated to helping survivor families by providing presents to children on three important times of the year. For victims and survivors of domestic violence, events such as birthdays, Valentines Day and Back to School Day can be stressful and scary. These days are often times when parents are expected to give the best presents and children want to feel remembered and adequate. PRESENT NOW addresses this need during this healing period. This support helps empower women and bring a sense of joy and comfort to their children.
