Providing a safe place for those who have been through terrible violence is something everyone in our community should support.
Houston, TX (PRWEB) September 24, 2015
Cole Insurance Group, a locally owned insurance firm with offices that serve Houston and the surrounding communities, is joining the Houston Area Women’s Center to initiate a charity drive to raise funds that will be used to provide for victims of domestic and sexual abuse throughout the area.
The Houston Area Women’s Center assists individuals in overcoming the effects of domestic and sexual violence and in moving forward with their lives. The Center offers shelter, counseling, and advocacy in an effort to help local women build lives free from violence.
The Center receives over 45,000 calls per year over the crisis hotline and runs a 120 bed emergency shelter for abused women. Clients of the Center receive a wide range of services, including counseling, career services, and self-sufficiency training. All of these services are free of charge, and the Center relies heavily on community contributions to stay open.
“The Houston Area Women’s Center has been providing safety and security to victims of abuse and violence for a generation, and we’re working to make sure the Center is able to continue their mission,” says Timothy Cole, owner and manager of Cole Insurance Group. “Providing a safe place for those who have been through terrible violence is something everyone in our community should support.”
Cole and his team are advocating and educating the local community on the realities of domestic violence as well as working to gather donations that will be used to ensure the Center is fully funded. The Cole team is also working on a social media presence that they predict will draw in even more support from throughout Texas and beyond.
In addition to supporting the Houston Area Women’s Center, the Cole Group is planning to work with another local charity every two months from here forward as part of an ongoing community involvement campaign they call “Agents of Change.”
