On July 21, a $2000.00 check was presented from the Vista Elks to No Silence, No Violence, a non-profit grass roots organization committed to providing education to college students, high school students, and employers with regard to work place safety, training, resources, and community development in order to eliminate the stigma surrounding relationship abuse/sexual assault, while creating awareness, shifting perspectives, and creating global change around San Diego County.

17,000 reports of domestic violence are reported in our county each year.  37% of those have had children present.  No Silence, No Violence works in partnership with the San Diego Domestic Violence Council.  In the 2 years since their inception they have reached over 4,000 students with educational seminars.  They have had the opportunity to provide resources, support, and guidance to 291 students that have come forward as a result of these workshops.

No Silence, No Violence is committed to raising funds in order to stand alongside women and their children as they prepare to safely leave an abusive relationship, while providing them with the means necessary to rebuild their lives.  This support includes: access to free support groups, payment for trauma therapy for the woman and children, rental deposits, gas cards, bus passes, grocery vouchers, utility payments, childcare, and clothing.

The Elks of Vista Lodge #1968 of the Benevolent and Protective Order of the Elks of the United States of America will serve the people and community through programs showing that “Elks Care, Elks Share”.
