As a non-profit organization, Alianza relies primarily on government funding. Only a small percentage of funding for domestic violence comes from foundations and corporations, and despite Latinos being the largest ethnic minority in the country, Latino-serving organizations receive a very small percentage of all foundation and corporate funding.
Unfortunately, too many of our families and relationships continue to be torn apart by intimate partner violence. Our children are growing up experiencing or witnessing violence in their homes and are being scarred, sometimes for their entire lives.
If we are to build strong and thriving communities we need to create safe and healthy families.
To do this assertively, we need to build support in our own communities. Businesspeople and other professionals can be an important source of support. Please reach deep into your pockets or pocket books and help Alianza strengthen its efforts to build safe and healthy families and communities.
A special thank you to the Office on Violence Against Women, U.S. Department of Justice, for making our online Resource Center possible through Grant numbers 2009-TA-AX-K067, 2010-ET-S6-K017 and most recently 2011-TA-AX-K091.
