The Holiday Shop Launch Event will take place on Friday, December 12, 2014 at 10am at the Women Aware Administrative Offices, 250 Livingston Avenue, New Brunswick, NJ 08901.  Every year in December, Women Aware holds a Holiday Gift Shop for the women and children it serves, stocked by donations of new toys, clothes, handbags and jewelry from community members.  Mothers get an opportunity to “shop” for their children, and children for their mothers- a simple act, but one that has a profound impact in empowering families to move beyond abuse.  This year, all participants will also receive a complimentary copy of the Allstate Financial Empowerment Curriculum.

Women Aware is one of the New Jersey Coalition for Battered Women’s Partner Programs in  “Community Building”, a Moving Ahead Financial Empowerment grant awarded by the Allstate Foundation to fund financial empowerment for Domestic Violence Survivors.  Through this grant, Women Aware, will be able to provide financial literacy and job readiness/job training assistance and support to Survivors in Middlesex County.

Founded in 1979, Women Aware is the state designated domestic violence agency for Middlesex County.  With 35 years of experience, Women Aware provides a multitude of free and confidential services to Survivors of domestic violence including a 24-hour hotline, an emergency shelter, support groups, creative arts therapy for children, and legal clinics and workshops.  The hotline answers 6,000 calls every year; Women Aware houses over 200 Survivors of domestic violence and provides non-residential services to over 2,000.

Donors, Funders and Community Partners will be helping to launch this philanthropic event.
