The Avon Foundation for Women has awarded a $10,250 grant to the Sexual Assault and Domestic Violence Center of Yolo County as part of the foundation’s national Speak Out Against Domestic Violence campaign.

The program invites Avon regional offices across the United States to nominate local domestic violence nonprofit organizations for funding under the program. The grant was written by Cindy Asbell, a SADVC supporter and local Avon representative, on SADVC’s behalf to support victims of domestic violence.

The agency was one of only three in the Western region to receive funding from the Speak Out Against Domestic Violence program.

Avon and the Avon Foundation for Women launched the grant program in 2004 to help end the cycle of domestic violence. Since then, the foundation has donated more than $28 million to domestic and gender violence programs in the United States, including support for awareness, education, direct service and prevention.

In 2011, SADVC provided 6,880 bed nights of shelter to 135 adults and 127 children. In 2012, 274 women and children found safe shelter with SADVC, and nearly 9,000 nights of shelter were provided.

The foundation’s Speak Out Against Domestic Violence grant will support victims of domestic violence in Yolo County by providing safe shelter, counseling, legal advocacy and support, and domestic violence response, prevention and education.

“We are extremely grateful the Avon Foundation for Women shares our passion for this important cause,” said Lynnette Irlmeier, executive director of SADVC.
