The Grace Center of Fredericksburg is currently developing a capital campaign. Our goal is to raise the funds necessary to build a shelter where those who have been impacted by domestic violence can seek shelter from their abuser.
Domestic violence is not only a national problem, but a community issue as well. Currently, the closest shelters are in Boerne and Kerrville, which stay busy and near capacity.
1 in 4 women and 1 in 7 men have been victims of severe physical violence (e.g. beating, burning, strangling) by an intimate partner in their lifetime.
1 in 15 children are exposed to intimate partner violence each year, and 90% of these children are eyewitnesses to this violence.
Between 21-60% of victims of intimate partner violence lose their jobs due to reasons stemming from the abuse.
72% of all murder-suicides involve an intimate partner; 94% of the victims of these murder suicides are female.
Provide services that break the cycle of domestic violence, giving individuals hope and healing.
Provide support and services for individuals impacted by domestic violence.
