The Magic of Hope provides a glimpse into life at Hope Haven, and attendees learn about the empowering practices going on at the shelter. But most importantly, the guests of Hope Haven learn about how domestic violence is impacting their communities and how they can get involved. The Gala will feature riveting entertainment, an extensive silent/live auction, a fabulous dinner, and one woman’s empowering story on her personal domestic violence experience.
Domestic violence never takes a break. Every 3 seconds someone will experience some form of domestic violence. Cass County, one of the counties Hope Haven serves, has a little over 100,000 men and women. Based on domestic violence statistics, 12,500 women and 7,150 men in this one county alone will experience some form of domestic violence. That is almost 20,000 community members, some of which we probably see daily. We are here to serve them.
