GIVE A CHANCE
Safety Planning/Go Bag
The Give A Chance Program- Offers safety planning and a care package also called the (go bag) for victims in need of emergency assistance such as; food or groceries during a relocation.
The program also offers help for clients with housing, transportation or emergency hotel needs. Each client receives a "go bag" that includes; a gift card for food/groceries, towels, pajamas, a jogging suit, toothbrushes, toothpaste, blanket, and other feminine hygiene products.
Children items are available based on unique family needs.
During this time a safety plan is developed to help survivors create a strategic plan to keep themselves, their children and/or pets safe while preparing to leave an abusive partner and understanding of what to expect after leaving.
Each survivor that makes a decision to leave their abuser or in need of emergency assistance will receive this service to help with their transition.
Survivors have so much mentally to prepare for and affairs to get in order, basic necessities, where to live, or transportation should not be another concern.
