By training and supporting others to replicate our model, lives will be saved. There is nothing more important than that. However, the Jeanne Geiger Crisis Center remains equally committed to providing the local counseling, advocacy and legal services that we first began offering 30 years ago for clients here on the North Shore. In 2012 we helped nearly 1400 victims of domestic violence, more than any previous year, at no cost to them.
While we are hopeful that national exposure will attract new sources of financial support to help fund our local programs we are also grateful for, and continue to depend upon, every individual, business and organization in our region that supports the very important work of the Center here at home. You can take pride in knowing that it is the local work being done to stop domestic violence here in Newburyport and neighboring towns that is now being adopted by many others across the state and across the country.
Thank you to all who have contributed, and continue to contribute in so many ways, every day.
Chairman, Board of Directors
