Mirman, Markovits & Landau, P.C. Proudly Supports the Safe Homes Project of Brooklyn
Michele Mirman | Firm News | December 7, 2015
Mirman, Markovits & Landau, P.C. is pleased to announce our support of Good Shepherd Services’ Safe Homes Project, a community-based, multi-service domestic violence program committed to confronting domestic and partner violence by providing the support, information, and advocacy needed by communities and individuals to live safely.Since 1977, staff and volunteers have provided a wide range of services and advocacy to benefit victims and survivors of domestic violence. All are available free of charge and are offered in English and Spanish.
The Safe Homes Project offers the following services:
- LGBTQ services
- Confidentially-located emergency shelter
- Community outreach
- Children’s services
- Support hotline
- Weekly support group
- Short term counseling
- Legal advocacy
These services are extremely important to domestic violence victims when other sources of help are scarce. These desperately-needed programs provide valuable help to women and children throughout New York City, especially during the holidays, when violent crime increases.
“I don’t believe it’s a holiday season for women and children who have had to escape their homes to avoid being victims of domestic violence,” says Mirman, Markovits & Landau, P.C. founder Michele S. Mirman, “but I hope we can offer some comfort to them by supporting The Safe Homes Project of Brooklyn, which offers shelter and a multitude of important services to them.”
In the spirit of holiday giving, we encourage you to join us in supporting this worthy cause.
