We’re Taking On Domestic Violence
As Mother’s Day is approaching, The Back Care Center in Dumont is again working to help troubled families in the Bergen County area with their annual fund raising drive benefiting “Center for Hope and Safety”.
Since 1976, Center For Hope And Safety (formerly Shelter Our Sisters) has offered refuge to Bergen County’s women and children who are affected by domestic violence by providing a diversified continuum of services that focus on attaining safety, empowerment and self-sufficiency. The agency’s life-saving programs include: a 24-hour hotline; a confidential emergency shelter; transitional housing, crisis counseling; case management; children’s programming; legal assistance; Hispanic outreach; financial literacy and work-readiness training; follow-up services; and community education. Visit www.hopeandsafetynj.org for further information.
This Year, May 8th-13th, Dr. David Schwartz, of The Back Care Center in Dumont NJ will again be donating his time to help raise awareness and much needed funds for CHS. However, for the first time, Chiropractic offices around the country will also do the same for shelters in their local region.
All new patients in exchange for a $50 donation to the center will receive a full chiropractic examination, any needed digital x-rays, a report of examination findings and a gift certificate for a ½ hour massage (normally valued at $305). Existing patients will be able to make a $20 donation in exchange for an adjustment (normally $60). All donations will go to CHS.
“Right after my daughter was born I started donating my time to this cause” said Dr. Schwartz. “The idea of a woman or a child being hurt and having no option and no safe haven is simply unacceptable.”
