Each year, 3-4 million women are beaten and victimized by the partners in their lives who are supposed to love and support them. Although a majority of victims are women, men are also abused.
If you are a victim of domestic violence, you are not alone
Abuse…Physical, Emotional or Sexual. Abuse is about one person controlling another. It is a pattern of behavior. Many people do not think of themselves as being abused because they have not been hit. Does the person you love: slap, hit, anger easily, force sex, push, criticize you, call you names?
Providing Hope Forever
An Endowment Campaign
Over the years, Green Gables has been fortunate to receive federal funding to support our essential work. But in September 2021, that funding was cut, resulting in a $200,000 annual loss to our budget. We can weather the first year on our own, but as we look to the future, we need the support of the community to help us bridge the gap.
To that end, we embark on a three-year Endowment Campaign—PROVIDING HOPE FOREVER—in an effort to build a sustainable future for Green Gables Haven. With your financial help, we can ensure domestic violence victims have the assistance they need to become survivors on the road ahead toward health, healing and hope. Forever.
This is not an auction, this is an Online Platform to purchase Pre-Raffle Tickets. While purchasing appears to be bidding on an auction item, this truly is a platform to purchase ONLINE RAFFLE TICKETS for up to Five (5) Different Packages!
You can buy multiple tickets for one (1) package or select up to as many tickets as you wish for any package. You will be prompted to pay at the end after making your RAFFLE TICKET selections.
The prompt that says – Don’t have a bidder number yet? Register here – That is simply how you check out to purchase your raffle tickets.
We will offer the Pre-Raffle through January 31, 2023 and will also have tickets available at our Annual Charity Auction and Dinner being held on February 11, 2023.
We will be doing a LIVE draw directly from the event so that those that aren’t able to join us will know immediately if they have successfully won a raffle.

“I cried a tear today, I wasn’t certain why. I cried a tear today, I thought of all those lies. I cried a tear today, my babies cried for me. I cried a tear today, they saw me weep and bleed. I cried a tear today, he held me very close. I cried a tear today, he sent me a beautiful rose. I cried a tear today, he was begging on his knees. I cried a tear today, he said, ‘baby please don’t leave’. I cried a tear today, I was lying underground. I cried a tear today, but there was no sound. I cried a tear today, this time it was for my kids for if I could have done it different, I surely would have.”
