COMMUNITY IMPACT MAKERS

WHAT ARE COMMUNITY IMPACT MAKERS?


Our newest auxiliary group works to create a meaningful experience for Newhouse supporters through community dialogue, education, and networking. At the quarterly events, guests will hear from a powerful speaker or panel, learn updates from the Newhouse President + CEO, and listen to courageous survivors about their experience with the event’s pillar of programming at Newhouse. 

Our ask for this group is that each member signs up to be a monthly donor at Newhouse. This gift can be as little as $5/month! Our hope is that this group will feel invested in the work happening at Newhouse and make a financial commitment to helping break the cycle of domestic violence. Every dollar makes an impact on creating a space where survivors can feel safe, find self-sufficiency, and achieve whole-person healing.
