Dear Defenders of Children friends, old and new:

Here at DofC, we are only able to continue doing the incredible work of walking beside our clients, who have suffered unspeakable family violence, abuse and neglect, through funding we receive from folks who are inspired to help families in our community. Donating online today right now is the fastest, and easiest, way you can help our kiddo clients, and his/her (non-offending) mommy or daddy escape abuse at home and unspeakable violence. Helping survivors navigate through the overwhelming nature of a family court case, while also helping them begin to heal the emotional wounds ripped open by experiencing or witnessing extreme violence is what we do and who we are.

But our work can only survive with YOUR help. We want you to be a part of our family! Will you stand with us and become a Defender? For those of you who want to help us fight bravely for access to justice for the smallest voices among us, we would be honored to have your support. We are desperately in need of $20,000 in monetary donations before the end of 2022 so we can keep fighting the good fight. Any/all denominations are so greatly appreciated. These past two years have devastated our fundraising abilities, and we need your help right now, more than ever.

From the bottom of our hearts, THANK YOU for considering Defenders of Children for your charitable donation today.

With love and gratitude,
Johanna Fierstein, Executive Director
