Friends and Helpers Welcome

Welcome!

Friends and Helpers provides assistance to women, children and teens who find themselves involved in domestic violence. We work with many of the centers in Southern California and help provide support, needed items and encouragement so they can rebuild their lives. Our goal is to support and encourage women, teens and children who are trying to help themselves out of a violent, hurtful situation.

Abuse can strike anyone anywhere; spouses, parents, children and teens can fall victim to abuse. When the survivors are brave enough to finally leave their abusive situation, many flee with their kids and the clothes on their backs to counseling centers and shelters.

The challenge is that more and more women and children are seeking help and each year and Friends and Helpers must expand to fit the growing needs of these deserving souls. We hope you will join in our mission and help a very worthwhile cause.
