Thank you for supporting survivors at Hope Shining Blue!

Because of your generosity, more than $193,000 was raised at the 5th annual Hope Shining Blue event on Wednesday, April 25 to enhance care through Aurora Healing & Advocacy Services!

Thanks to you, more women, men and children will get the compassionate, specialized care they need to heal from a traumatic assault. Plus, we're using a portion of your gifts to publicize the Aurora Healing Center 24-hour hotline number throughout the community and via digital media. We want to be sure we reach the people who need these services the most – so they know that help is available and they are not alone.

Thank you for helping survivors of sexual violence on their healing journey! We can't do what we do without you.
