Typically these families are fleeing immediate threats, coming to us with nothing but the clothes on their back. You can make a difference in the lives of adults and children affected by domestic violence by partnering with us in one of the following ways:

Financial abuse is a form of domestic violence that is rarely discussed, yet is commonly present in abusive relationships. Financial abuse occurs when an abuser makes the victim become financially dependent on them. Financial abuse is a form of abuse because the abuser is using a form of power and control over their victim. This form of abuse creates barriers for victims and makes it difficult for them to leave an abusive relationship.
Some red flags include, but are not limited to:
Marjaree Mason Center was invited to take part in Kaiser Permanente’s Annual Community Giving Campaign on November 1st. Each year Kaiser Permanente (KP Fresno) hosts this event to encourage their physicians and employees to make an impact on their local community by donating to their preferred non-profit. Recently, Aetna and PG&E also held similar events to educate their employees about non-profits they can support and MMC was honored to attend both events.
Halloween is such an exciting time of the year! There is so much anticipation leading up to this special night when children get to dress up as their favorite character and spend a night out with their families. The joy of trick or treating around their neighborhood creates a long lasting memory for children.
Yet, experiencing holidays like these can be difficult for survivors of domestic violence. The cost of costumes can be overwhelming and discourage families from participating. Children are left disappointed and parents are left feeling like they have failed them. Fortunately, this year will not be the case for our safe house clients!
