United Heritage Charity Foundation supports Austin Survivors of Abuse
The Charity Foundation Gives $20,000 to Support The SAFE Alliance
The United Heritage Charity Foundation has been working with The SAFE Alliance, a local organization that serves survivors of child abuse, sexual assault and exploitation, and domestic violence. For more than 45 years, the organization has been committed to ending violence and abuse. In 2015, Austin Children's Shelter and SafePlace began talks on how they might better address the complex issues of violence and abuse. The organizations decided to merge and create The SAFE Alliance to strengthen their mission and vision. Now an accredited organization, SAFE continues to stand together with the community to stop abuse for everyone. From July to September, United Heritage Charity Foundation and SAFE have come together to share a cohesive message that is tied to education, family, and children.
"SAFE is an amazing group and does so much to help kids and families during their difficult times. We are proud to be a sponsor of their organization and their upcoming events that raise money to fund the work that they do in the community," United Heritage Charity Foundation Chairman May Lofgreen said.
Part of the Charity Foundation's donation went towards two of SAFE's events:
Additionally, a portion of the donations will also go to The SAFE Alliance as unrestricted funds so that the organization can use it where it is most needed.
The mission of the United Heritage Charity Foundation is to back projects and organizations within its communities. More than $2 million in donations have been distributed, not including in-kind gifts, given to local charities. The Charity Foundation's top priority is contributing to deserving organizations that positively impact Central and East Texas to make a difference in others' lives.
