How Can I Help?

You can help build a community without domestic violence. Here are some ways that you can make a difference:

  • Get Involved with Between Friends
    • Donate now and help break the cycle of domestic violence
    • Plan an event or fundraising activity. Some of our dedicated supporters have: run a marathon in memory of a woman who lost her life to domestic violence, planned a bellydancing performance, organized a party, donated proceeds from their tip jar, held a spa fundraiser, etc. The possibilities are endless! If you'd like to plan an event with Between Friends as the beneficiary contact our Institutional Giving Manager Molly Pim at (773) 274-5232 x 117.
    • Brighten the lives of survivors and their children this holiday season by donating gift cards or prepaid Visa cards.
    • Donate Goods and Services. Check out our wish list and learn how to make a donation.
    • Volunteer. We have opportunities for you to serve as a board member, work with victims, take care of children, help to plan events, assist with general office work, and more.
  • Take Action
    • If you see something, say something if it is safe to do so. If it is not safe, find out if anyone else is around to help or consider if calling the police would be helpful.
    • Speak out publicly against domestic violence.
    • Provide training for your employees in how to identify and address domestic violence in the workplace. Call (773) 274-5232 x 114 for more information about customized trainings.
    • Call your federal, state, and local legislators and ask them to reinstate and/or increase funding for domestic violence services.
    • Support a neighbor, co-worker, friend, or family member who is being abused.
    • Invite speakers to your religious congregation, workplace, or civic group to help educate others on domestic violence issues.
