At the heart of the CVIC’s mission is the health and well-being of children and adults experiencing violence. Never – in four decades of serving Grand Forks County – has this been more important than now. Yet, as our community and the world at large respond to an unfathomable pandemic, violence – and the crisis that consumes it – won’t stop for COVID-19. Neither will we.
Your kindness may be doubled
Maintaining basic needs such as housing, utilities, transportation, daycare, and/or food are often the reason many clients return to abuse environments. Unfortunately, violence and its economic impacts don’t stop for a national pandemic. Thanks to longtime CVIC friends Pete and Mel Hoistad, however, there’s hope when it’s needed most. When you give $50 or more today for emergency needs, the Hoistads will match your gift dollar for dollar (until we reach $5,000 total in match gifts).
