Fourth Donation, Denton County Friends of the Family

Sorry for the late blog post everyone, the holidays really threw me for a loop! Can you believe, we’re now on our fourth donation? I’ve circled back to Texas, with a truly incredible organization that partners extensively with my grad school, the University of North Texas.

Denton County Friends of the Family (DCFOF) “is dedicated to providing compassionate, comprehensive services to those impacted by rape, sexual abuse, and domestic violence, while partnering with our community to promote safety, healing, and prevention.” It is the “sole provider in Denton County of shelter and free outreach services to those who have been affected by relationship violence and/or sexual assault.”

DCFOF has a 24-hour crisis line, a physical outreach office and shelter space, and a thrift store where “proceeds from community shoppers benefit our agency’€™s extensive and comprehensive services.”

As I mentioned, they have a great partnership with UNT. They happily provide resources, education, and programming for any students or offices that ask.

Consider donating to your local shelter, they provide a much-needed service to so many families trying to get out of bad situations. Not only do they provide shelter, but they provide education and resources to their communities. I’m especially partial to organizations that also work with local campuses to provide education, support, and relief to those students and employees!

I’ll be posting a new highlight next week. If you know of any orgs that you’d like me to highlight or have any requests for a cause to research, let me know!
