Landmark Year for The Retreat
2007 will mark The Retreat's 20th Anniversary. Throughout the year they will be honoring those who have been pivotal in the success of The Retreat, offering lectures on domestic violence, and bringing greater awareness to the community about the issue of domestic violence and how people can help. The demand for services has only grown since The Retreat's inception in 1987. A few landmarks for them include building a shelter that holds up to 18 women and children; creating an advocacy program so that a victim of domestic violence doesn't have to face the court system alone; developing a no-fee counseling program; reaching 3500 students annually through in school violence prevention programs; and educating 2500 individuals a year through community programs.
