Business & Corporate Sustainer Group
Welcome to the Liberty House Business and Corporate Sustainer Group. This group of influential community leaders supports Liberty House in meeting the needs of children and families who are facing concerns of abuse or neglect.
Business & Corporate Sustainers pledge monthly or annual contributions so that Liberty House can see more children, provide more support to family members, and help the community prevent child abuse. The two-year strategic plan includes a process for gradually increasing the capacity to see children so that we will be able to see 50% more by the conclusion of FY 2015-16.
Why join? Child abuse and neglect happen more than many people realize, affecting over 10% of children under 18. The issue could involve employees, colleagues, friends or family members, who might not know where to turn for help. Without coordination, meeting the child’s needs can involve multiple appointments for interviewing, evaluation, assistance, and follow up services. These appointments take time, especially when they are located in different places. When adults are trying to hold down a job, missing work for multiple appointments can create problems. It is better when more services are coordinated and located in one place.
Liberty House provides that place. Our team offers medical checkups, interviews and family support in a safe, comfortable, neutral environment. Staff members coordinate appointments with local law enforcement and other agencies to provide more services in one location. Our staff members work hard to help other agencies have the information they need in order to do their own jobs effectively, such as making safety plans, arresting offenders, prosecuting cases. Working together helps children to be safer.
By investing you become part of the solution. The Liberty House Business & Corporate Sustainers’ consistent support ensures that we will be here for the children and families who need us. You will be part of a group that can provide advice to the Liberty House Board of Directors, be recognized as a leader in the effort to help children, prevent the cycle of child abuse and neglect, and help your community to be safer.
When you join, you will receive a beautifully framed membership poster to display in your business as well as window clings for your use.
