Charitable donations

We believe domestic violence can be eliminated within our society.


Help us succeed. Change will result when local communities confront the root causes of domestic violence and develop solutions to break the cycle. Louisville, Kentucky responded to the death of Mary Byron with the creation of VINE®, the nation's first automated system of victim notification. VINE is now protecting citizens in 1,400 communities in 36 states and two Canadian provinces.
