Our mission is to help end domestic violence and abuse of all ages. We do this by raising awareness through education and providing resources and programs that assist victims of abuse. By working with community partners to harness our combined resources, we provide support to victims of domestic violence and their children and promote healthy dating relationships among teenagers. We are dedicated to ending violence and abuse of all ages and promoting healing after abuse.

Notes from the nonprofit

We are a very small organization with two staff members and a volunteer board. We seek to have diversity within our organization to reflect the population of our County and the population we serve. Due to our size and limited resources, we prioritize the needs and welfare of those we serve above other goals.

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Jul 01 - Jun 30

SOURCE: IRS Form 990 info

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.
