Schuylkill Women in Crisis Endowment Fund

Established 2013

"They say it’s the little things in life that count. During my stay at SWiC there were many little things that helped me, leaving me overwhelmed by the kindnesses shown to me; however, I need to say, that the big things in life that change us forever and happen less often, are equally if not more important. SWiC’s staff was right next to me through it all. My appreciation goes beyond words. During the three worst weeks of my life, I couldn’t have been in a better place (not even with friends)." said a SWIC shelter resident.

This note is an example of the gratitude so frequently expressed to Schuylkill Women in Crisis (SWiC) by survivors of domestic and sexual violence who use the services. Experts tell us that the most critical factor in determining how a victim recovers from trauma is the response he or she receives when disclosing the abuse.

Gratitude is also intended for the many donors who make SWiC’s services possible. All contributions to the newly-created endowment fund will enable SWiC to continue services, often life-saving, that help victims transform into survivors.

SWiC also works as a catalyst in fostering a community-wide response to the problem of domestic and sexual violence that prioritizes victim safety and holds offenders accountable so that the entire community can become partners in ending violence against women and children.

Distributions from this fund are made to Schuylkill Women In Crisis (SWIC) for such uses and purposes as the organization determines.
