We need your help. MUST MATCH $300,000 FOR A GRANT BY NOVEMBER 1, 2019.

Festus, MO (January 29, 2019) – Mary’s House of Hope at A Safe Place transitional housing project is pleased to announce it has received a $300,000 one for one match challenge grant from the J.E. and L.E. Mabee Foundation, and a $160,000 grant from the Federal Home Loan Bank. Funds will support building transitional housing for women and children who have experienced domestic violence.

To receive the challenge funds from the J.E. and L.E. Mabee Foundation, the additional $300,000 needs to be raised by community members before November 1, 2019. Your financial support is necessary to guarantee this grant.

To satisfy the conditions of the Federal Home Loan Bank, construction must begin by June 1, 2019.

COMTREA and domestic violence survivors need your help to match the challenge grant through monetary gifts or making a monthly pledge. On average, more than $30,000 will need to be raised each month. Make your monetary gift or pledge online at www.comtrea.org

“Receiving these grants means that we are closer to achieving our goal of providing additional safe housing to women and children who have been affected by domestic violence,” said Kim Elbl, VP of Fundraising and Development at COMTREA. “This project will allow us to serve more families that are seeking immediate emergency shelter.”

Mary’s House of Hope at A Safe Place joins COMTREA, A Safe Place in offering shelter, safety, and care for women and children escaping domestic violence. The project will include apartment units which promote transition toward independent living.

A Safe Place domestic violence shelter provided 6,289 nights of safety in 2017.

Due to capacity, the shelter turned away 1,166 individuals seeking shelter. Without services, victims of domestic violence face ongoing physical injury, psychological trauma, and even death. Building the transitional housing units will ensure more survivors and their families find shelter and hope for their future.

Mary’s House of Hope at A Safe Place has raised over $800,000 from community donors, NAP tax credit monies, fundraisers, and grants in the last year.
