Providing Safe Havens for Women in North Texas: Mary Kay ASh Foundation Awards $100,000 in Grants to Four Local North Texas Domestic Violence Shelters

According to National Domestic Violence Hotline (NDVH), 1 in 4 women will experience domestic violence in her lifetime. At the Mary Kay Ash Foundation, we are committed to creating a safe and healthy world for women, that’s why it is critical we do our part to help  end domestic violence, especially in our global headquarters’ local community. ​

The Mary Kay Ash Foundation recently awarded a total of $100,000 in grants to four North Texas domestic violence shelters helping  women they serve on their path to safety and living a life free from abuse. ​The four shelters that were awarded include Genesis Women’s Shelter & Support, The Family Place, Denton County Friends of the Family and Hope’s Door New Beginning Center. These grants will ensure women seeking assistance have access to mental health counseling for themselves and their children, legal aid, childcare, groceries, basic utilities, housing and more.  

To date, the Mary Kay Ash Foundation has donated more than $57 million to domestic violence shelters, programs and services.
