Richards: Support Chapel Hill NOW’s Campaign for Compass Center 2020

Did you know that Orange County has no emergency housing for victims of domestic violence desperately needing a safe place?

To fill this critical need, Compass Center for Women and Families is embracing a proven strategy known as “scattered housing.” They will lease 3 – 6 apartments across Orange County to shelter domestic violence victims. 

These apartments need to be ready to welcome those fleeing a desperate situation. This is where each of us can contribute to a better future for victims and their families.

The Chapel Hill chapter of the National Organization for Women (NOW) is dedicated to ending violence against women and to supporting the needs of women and families. That is why we have established a gift registry at dedicated to supplying necessities for those sheltering at these apartments.

I know that you will respond as generously as you have in the past.  Find out more at Open “Safe Homes, New Lives” in the banner on their website or click on picture.

Directions for accessing the registry appear below. Thank you.

In sisterhood,

Gerrie Richards
President, Chapel Hill NOW
