Makers of Memories video, predecessor of Children of Domestic Violence
Our mission is to provide children who have witnessed unending
domestic violence in their home with the financial resources
to enjoy their very first vacation, so they can form memories
that will change their lives forever.
Victims of domestic abuse are scared. Their children are scared. Together, they are struggling to survive.
Planning a vacation is simply not something these families even consider. Allowing the thought to enter their minds will only lead to new disappointments.
But vacation is exactly what they need. An opportunity to form just one memory that can change a life. Their lives.
We understand that this is a chance for these children to form strong, powerful, positive memories that show them that there is something better. There is peace. They can choose to break the pattern of violence that they have witnessed in their household. They can choose to work hard to one day provide this peace to their own families.
And that they will work hard to do what it takes to get there.
