Thank you for being a part of the DuPage E-Gala!
Your support of Metropolitan DuPage and Family Shelter Service is truly inspiring, and it means everything to the children and families we serve.
We asked for your support during this time of isolation to show our families they’re not alone, and you responded as a community: together, we’ve raised more than $271,000 so far to empower survivors of domestic violence and their children.
You offered help and hope to the families safe in our Shelter, the callers to our 24/7 Domestic Violence Hotline, the survivors feeling more secure behind Orders of Protection, the teens better understanding healthy relationships, the kids learning to process their experiences, the victims who are feeling more like survivors than ever.
Metropolitan’s CEO, Ric Estrada, joins us to share a message of appreciation:
This week, our co-chairs and our honorees shared their connections with domestic violence, and we shared perspectives from staff and clients. We hope you learned more about not only the impact of Metropolitan DuPage and Family Shelter Service’s continuum of domestic violence and wrap-around services, but also ways you can empower survivors of domestic violence and their families. Revisit these messages on our DuPage E-Gala Stories page.
Though the E-Gala is over, you can always support survivors of domestic violence and their families by donating here.
