26 miles. 26 safe nights.

26 miles. 26 safe nights.

From Leah Seigel

For each mile I run in Boston, I want to help ensure a woman has a safe place to sleep, free from the grip of domestic violence. Join me by donating to Beacon of Hope to pay for a night of safe shelter.

Update #11

I'm overwhelmed with gratitude as I announce over $2600 has been raised for Beacon of Hope. On the two-year anniversary of the Boston Marathon Bombing, it is so special to be a part of something so good for my community here in Indy! #OneBostonDay

More Info

Beacon of Hope serves and empowers victims of domestic violence by helping them: develop a safe plan for getting out, heal through counseling sessions, survive by receiving food and clothing, and thrive with life skills training.  One of the most important things we do is assist victims in obtaining safe housing, but unfortunately, our domestic violence shelters cannot meet this growing and pressing need.  According to the National Network to End Domestic Violence, each day in Indiana over 100 requests for housing go unmet because of a lack of resources.   Instead of turning women away when our local shelters are full, Beacon of Hope continues to wage war against domestic violence; we have partnerships with several hotels to accommodate victims while they await a more permanent arrangement.  Please consider donating to cover this cost, $60-120 per day, so that women can get out, get safe, and get help.

Update #4

Domestic violence is not stopped by demographics—race, age, socioeconomic status, gender, sexual orientation. Nor will any of those things stop the work of Beacon of Hope. Today, our victim advocate is helping a man in a physically, financially, and emotionally abusive same sex relationship get out and travel to another state to where he can be safe with family. I'm thankful for all those partnering in this important work!

Update #1

"We served 1,500 victims of domestic violence in a 24-hour period of time. The most disturbing part was that we turned away 150 of those victims because we didn’t have bed space for them." - Laura Berry, Executive Director, ICADV.
