The meaning behind “Illuminating Hope”…

Navigating a safe way out of an abusive relationship can be paralyzing. Many Henderson House clients reach out for our services in the darkest moments of their lives. Our advocates and staff, many of whom are also survivors, meet our clients in these familiar dark moments and offer the light of hope through confidential 1-on-1 support, 24-hour crisis response, 30-day emergency shelter, assistance with safety plans and protection orders, resource referral, support groups, and court accompaniment. This work of illuminating hope is vital, life changing, life saving, and ongoing.

October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. This month, we invite you to show your support of Henderson House—the only nonprofit in Yamhill County dedicated to serving survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault—by participating in our “Illuminating Hope” fundraiser. Here are a few ways you can show your support this October:

  1. Donate to Henderson House. Your gift will help to ensure that life-saving shelter and services continue to be available for survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault in Yamhill County, Oregon.
  2. Attend our Candlelight Vigil at the McMinnville Civic Plaza on Thursday, Oct. 13th at 6:30pm, followed by a walk to our Advocacy Center for some hot cider & cocoa, snacks, and to learn more about Henderson House.
  3. Purchase a $10 passport/raffle ticket which can be picked up at our Advocacy Center (610 SE 1st St, McMinnville, OR 97128) open Monday – Friday, 9am – 5pm. Participants can earn additional raffle tickets by showing up for our event partners (instructions can be found inside the passports). The raffle prize is a one-night stay at McMinnville’s Atticus Hotel and a gift basket to help you enjoy your stay.
  4. Bid on auction packages in our online auction. Bidding opens at Noon on Monday, October 17th and closes at 8:00pm on Friday, October 28th. Some of these packages would make really enviable Christmas presents – and it all goes toward a wonderful cause!

We are so grateful for your support and for all of our Illuminating Hope event partners.

Thank you!
