Domestic violence is a pervasive social and health problem and continues to be the leading cause of injury to women nationwide. The impact of domestic violence includes physical and psychological trauma, isolation from family and friends, harm to children witnessing or experiencing violence in their homes, homelessness, reduced employability and lost work productivity, substance abuse, and a host of other physical and mental health issues. Domestic violence crosses all geographic and socio-economic boundaries and involves all communities.
Laura’s House provides valuable and effective services to survivors of domestic violence and the community in general, making a life-long impact on the individuals they serve. Laura’s House celebrated their 25th anniversary in 2019.
At the PIT Glam It Up training event hosted by SeneGence International in January, the Make Sense Foundation made a donation to support the important work Laura’s House is doing in Orange County and the surrounding area.
