Please Accept Our Challenge to Support Loudoun Abused Women’s Shelter’s Legal Services
Loudoun Abused Women’s Shelter (LAWS) is the only domestic violence and sexual assault crisis center in Virginia with a legal department. Through it, LAWS offers free legal consultation or representation to victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, dating violence and stalking who need assistance obtaining a protective order or with other family law issues.
These services are critical for helping victims escape their abusers, particularly because many abusers control access to funds or have isolated the victim from support they would need to break free, according to Judy Hanley, Chief Executive Officer of LAWS.
In 2020, the COVID pandemic created an even greater need for support, and LAWS stepped up to provide services to more than 1,200 clients. Approximately 250 of them received free, confidential Legal Services.
With a $50,000 seed donation, 100WomenStrong has created a challenge grant to support LAWS Legal Services and asks the community to help by meeting or exceeding its contribution. Donations of all amounts are greatly appreciated. Currently, $73,800 has been met of the $100,000 goal, but we need more help.
