Golden House: 2022 in Review

Posted on 1-26-2023

Last year, in 2022, the numbers of those seeking Golden House for safety and help continued to rise, and members of the community remained steadfast in lending support in many ways.

2,698 Clients Served

Golden House provides emergency shelter for women, men, and children fleeing violence in their homes.  In addition, they provide comprehensive outreach services including safety planning, legal advocacy, support groups, mental health counseling, housing support, and prevention education.

258 Children Received Support from a Caring Children’s Advocate

Many of the children served at Golden House arrive with none of their own belongings. Meeting with a children’s advocate upon intake, children receive a book, blanket, and stuffed animal as comfort items; to help establish that they are safe and loved.

340 Volunteers Helped Families in Their Time of Need

In big ways and in small Golden House was supported by amazing volunteers.  From sharing their talents by cooking a meal or watching a child, to stocking donations or serving on a Golden House committee.

Nearly $100,000 Raised at Show of Strength

More than 200 guests attended Golden House’s annual fall gala.  Seven individuals who show their fortitude, strength, and courage in their everyday lives were honored, and hearts swelled as Kate Prall shared her deeply personal story of heartbreak and survival.

Looking to The Future

Golden House will grow in 2023!  Construction is now underway, and they’re preparing for their new facility — in which they will serve those dealing with domestic violence in the  safest and most caring way possible.  This year, Golden House will be sharing the exciting updates with you, as this dream becomes a long-awaited reality.

Golden House invites you to consider making a contribution to their “On the Rise” capital campaign, to ensure that families who need them the most have a safe place to begin their journey to healing. Donate HERE.
