This is our Annual Domestic Violence Rally Masquerade Gala. We are excited that we have had the opportunity and the pleasure to be hosted by Holiday Inn in the National Aiport/Crystal City in Washington DC. I hope you will join us this year on October 2nd, 2021, as we fundraise to help survivors and help gather together a night for survivors from our local transitional homes. What we need from our volunteers:

  • We will have volunteers checking people in.
  • Some Volunteers will be assisting with set up and break down
  • Some will be assisting with Audio and visual
  • Help with the stage set up
  • Some will assist with speakers and company host table set up
  • Another Photographer needed
  • Audio / Visual needed
  • Bloggers needed
  • We are also looking for a marketing specialist to help advertise and also spread awareness to all news channels. We need someone who will call all news, radio, and magazine and get the word out and also arrange interviews for the CEO.
Survivors from local transitional homes will be hosted this night and many companies are hosting survivors.
We ask for confidentiality forms from all VOLUNTEERS. Per Virginia and District of Columbia mandates, we require All volunteers to wear their masks in and around the hotel and guests of the Masquerade Gala.
This is a significant event as we will have speakers and speak up for each survivor who has dealt with the trauma of child abuse, sexual assault, IPV, military abuse and sexual assault, mental abuse, and human & sex trafficking. Let's stand for the forgotten, the abused, and let's not be silenced anymore. As we stand together, let stand for hope and stand for change. #ENOUGHISENOUGH

Mission Statement

Assist with housing and community aid services for women and children affected & inflicted by the issues of Domestic Violence, IPV, and Human & Sexual Trafficking for 6 months. Services we provide Family Advocacy and soon transitional home access

Description

What do we want?

  • Transitional Home

  • Safe Haven

  • Quality housing

  • We want to provide 6-month sustainability and turn around service aid for women and children affected by IPV & DV.

  • Family Advocacy Assistance

    How will this help our communities?‚Äč

  • Due to the number of human trafficking, sex trafficking, and Domestic Violence in Prince William County, we need transitional homes that assist our local area county agencies. Especially our police officers, sheriffs departments, and other county agencies that will alleviate the burden in our community.

  • We want to ensure an extended stay in our transitional home of 6 months rather than the max of 21 days. This will give us time for healthy mental assessment & aid, group psychological help, and on the job training and parental support.

  • Most victims who feel supported and are in a group or getting help from a therapist and are financially stable are more likely not to return to their abuser. And will feel safer rather than those who have no safety of financial or emotional support.
