April is Child Abuse Prevention Month. Continuing his support of organizations assisting battered women and children, Thomas J. Henry created campaigns in San Antonio, Austin, and Corpus Christi to encourage community education and support of nonprofits assisting these vulnerable communities. As he has done for several years, Thomas J. Henry will be donating a total of $120,000 across the three cities.
The benefiting organizations are San Antonio’s Christy’s Hope, Austin’s SAFE Alliance, and Corpus Christy’s The Purple Door. These nonprofits have spent years providing services and safe shelter for battered women and children. With the increase in domestic abuse since the COVID-19 pandemic began in 2020, these organizations need the support of the community now more than ever.
Below is information about each organization and how you can support their efforts and spread their mission in your community.
Christy’s Hope is located in San Antonio and has been serving the community for 23 years. The organization works directly with the San Antonio Battered Women’s Shelter to support them by hosting fundraising events and campaigns so that the shelter can maintain their open arms policy, and never have to turn a family away due to lack of funding. The shelter also provides 24-hour crisis intervention, counseling, legal assistance, an on-site school for children, on-site adult education, case management services, transitional housing, and on-site primary medical and dental care. To find out how you can donate and the impact you can make, visit Christy’s Hope’s donation page.
