We believe our mission matters. Our actions follow our belief. Lives are changed.

October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month
Education and action are so important to knowing what is happening and how to respond. Throughout this month we will share information to make us all aware and be able to support victims and survivors of abuse.
If you think that a loved one might be the victim of domestic violence, learn about the different types of abuse and watch for these signs:
Does your friend or loved one:
~Have unexplained cuts or bruises?
~Avoid friends, family, and favorite activities?
~Make excuses for their partner's behavior?
~Look uncomfortable or fearful around their partner?
Here is how you can help someone who is a victim of domestic violence:
~Let your loved one know that being treated this way isn't healthy and that they are not to blame.
~Call 911 if there is immediate danger
~Watch for the signs of abuse. Learn about the signs and keep track of the ones that you see. Those who escape abuse often need emotional, medical, and financial help. You can be an integral part of the helping network through Towels for Tears.

Reminder:

Did You Know?

There were at least 670 family households experiencing homelessness in Maryland in January 2020. Another 630 families in Virginia and 836 families in D.C.*

 

Families experiencing homelessness are similar to other families, but without a home to live in. They have the same needs as you and I. That’s where non-profits like Towels for Tears steps in to help.

 

Towels for Tears was founded in 2017 for the purpose of loving and helping those who are hurting. We have been positively impacting the lives of those starting over from traumatic and life changing circumstances through the delivery of every day necessities. Bed linens, comforters, towels, shower/bath sets, and personal hygiene essentials are provided free of charge provide comfort and hope to families in their time of need.

 

YOU can help the hurting. Donate and support Towels for Tears as we continue to be love in action and bring comfort to the hurting.
