Last night the DeKalb Chamber of Commerce hosted its annual awards banquet. For the first year ever, an award was given honoring an exceptional nonprofit organization operating in DeKalb County. The honorees included many outstanding organizations including the DeKalb County Community Gardens, Adventure Works, the DeKalb Area Agricultural Heritage Association, and the Egyptian Theatre.
Safe Passage was honored to be recognized alongside organizations doing such important work to provide critically needed services and services that make DeKalb such a wonderful place to live and work. We were beyond honored to be recognized as the winner of the 2018 DeKalb Chamber of Commerce Nonprofit Organization Award!
It is an honor to serve survivors of domestic and sexual violence and it is an honor to partner with our community to end domestic and sexual violence. So much of our work goes on outside the public eye, but this year, more than any other, we are thrilled to see our community and the country beginning to pay attention. We must all stand together, united in saying that we will not tolerate violence and abuse. We are proud to be recognized by our community and even more proud to be given the opportunity to support and stand beside survivors each and every day!
Thank you to our staff who work so hard and with so much passion; thank you to our board who give so much to guide and support this organization; thank you to our community who stand behind our critical work; and thank you to our clients who are the reason we work with such passion for the hope of a brighter, safer future!
