Welcome to TCCF a 501 (c) (3) organization website, a community movement to help stop domestic violence. Where we strive to help all communities with issues that affects us all. One of the biggest issues facing our communities today is domestic violence. We here at TCCF not only try to bring awareness to this growing issue, but we also raise funds to help other organizations who provides shelter, clothing, food, and the tools needed for the victims of domestic violence to get the help they need to get out of an abusive relationship.
When a person leaves an abusive relationship, they often have no where to go. For many, their only choice is to stay in the abusive relationship, going to a shelter or living on the street. Studies show a connection between domestic violence and homelessness, especially among families with children. Shelters provide immediate safety, respite and supportive services. Unfortunately, shelters are frequently filled to capacity and often turn away women and their children. It’s more important then ever to bring awareness to this issue and to raise the funds needed by such shelters so they won’t have to turn away any one in need of their help.
This is the reason that TCCF started the “WINTER WONDERLAND BALL”. This is an annual event held every year in the month of February. We are now in our fifth year of holding this event thanks to the many volunteers and supporters who have donated their time or given cash donations to help the cause.
We need everyone’s help in the fight against this heinous crime! Please help by making a donation today using the donate button on this page or from the home page of our site. You can also purchase tickets to our “Winter Wonderland Ball” below.
What is domestic violence? “Domestic violence is violence or other abuse by one person against another in a domestic setting, such as in marriage or cohabitation.” (Wikipedia)
While accurate information on the extent of domestic violence is difficult to obtain because of under-reporting, some aspects of the problem are known:
- Domestic violence is not confined to any one socioeconomic, ethnic, religious, racial or age group and knows no geographic or educational boundaries. It also occurs within teenage relationships and among same-sex partnerships.
- About one out of every four women in America will be physically assaulted or raped by an intimate partner at some point in their lives. In fact, American women are more likely to be assaulted, injured, raped or killed by a male partner than by any other type of assailant.
- Estimates of assaults on women by partners range from approximately 2 million to 4 million annually in the United States.
- The majority of women killed at work are murdered by a current or former intimate partner.
