A woman should never have to choose between being beaten or being homeless.
You can be there for a woman like Andrea on the most dangerous day of her life...
It's horrifying to think, but every day in Australia 250 women are forced to make a choice between staying with an abusive partner, or leaving and becoming homeless.
In fact, domestic violence is the single leading cause of homelessness for women and children. And research also shows that if a woman does leave a violent partner, she becomes four times more likely to suffer extreme violence or death at the hands of the man she's leaving. And let's not forget that currently, one woman a week is murdered by her partner or ex-partner.
The Salvation Army believes this is a national disgrace. And that is why this year's Red Shield Appeal asks you to help the Salvos leave no one in need.
Your Red Shield Appeal donation today will bring safety, shelter and support to women and children made homeless by domestic violence.
Get a mother and her children to a safe place on the day
they leave, under the care of Salvation Army officers.
Keep them safe from further harm in a Salvation Army women's
refuge, where they can stay for as long as they need us.
Give women and children escaping violence the professional
counselling and ongoing support to rebuild their lives.
Please give today knowing that your donation will make a real difference.
