Current News and Events
We had a total of 38 participants for the Candlelight Vigil and our Day of the Dead Celebration. The purpose of the candlelight vigil was to honor and remember those who have lost their lives due to domestic violence. Our purpose for the Day of the Dead Celebration was to give our community an outlet to express themselves and give them a space where they could honor any feelings or memories regarding domestic violence. We had community members contribute photographs of their loved ones, inspirational quotes and drawings to our altar. All of the items that were used to create the altar were created by community members through the workshops that were held throughout the month of October. It was encouraging to see so many members of our community support our mission and accompany us to share such a wonderful holiday and have their work be displayed in a beautiful and traditional altar for the Day of the Dead holiday. Thank you!

Support our Survivors this Holiday Season
The holidays are right around the corner and Live Violence Free is gearing up for the "Giving" Season. Our annual Adopt-a-Family program has changed but rest assured that we are still offering assistance for families who have suffered from violence this year. To find out how you can help our agency and give back to those who need it most this season follow the Holiday Givings link at the top of the page or click here for more information on how you can help. Come by our office and choose an ornament from our "Giving Tree" to take home and see how you can provide them with a special gift and a light of hope this holiday season.
End of the Year Membership Drive:This season the staff and board of directors at Live Violence Free are thankful for our supporters and their generosity. With your help, we continue to provide vital services to the survivors of domestic violence, child abuse, and sexual assault in South Lake Tahoe, Alpine County, and Douglas County. In the last year, our agency has helped 785 victims of domestic violence and 161 survivors of sexual assault. Currently, we are no longer able to offer legal services due to funding cuts, and our prevention program has also been reduced. Live Violence Free is proud to be committed to promoting a violence-free community, but we cannot be successful without your help. Please consider donating to our end of the year membership drive in order to protect the stability of our agency and the services we provide.
