At Deitch + Rogers, we care about our neighbors and fellow Atlantans, and we work hard every day to ensure that victims get the necessary assistance to help them move forward from the trauma they have suffered, whether that be physical or emotional.
As victim attorneys, we understand that these last couple of months have been extremely difficult for many people. With so many restrictions on where people can go and what people can do because of Covid-19, people are under a tremendous amount of stress. Families have been required to spend more time in close quarters with additional responsibilities in the home; worrying about their physical health, planning trips for groceries, waiting in lines at drive-through food banks, setting up on-line learning for their children, deciding which bills need to be paid and which can be delayed. Each of these factors are difficult at best, and when compiled as they are now, stress levels increase dramatically which often leads to a major increase in domestic violence.
Because of our firm’s commitment to assisting these victims, Deitch + Rogers LLC has chosen to support Women’s Resource Center to End Domestic Violence with a donation by the firm. This organization’s mission is “to create a society in which domestic violence no longer exists.” Their mission is an extension of something that we at Deitch & Rogers, as victim attorneys, believe to be vitally important.
Women’s Resource Center helps approximately 6,000 women and children each year by providing a safe place to go, food, clothing, whatever it takes. There’s a lot of need out there, and we wanted to do our part in helping these victims overcome their circumstances and begin a new journey, down a path to a better place.
You can also help end violence against women by donating, following Women’s Resource Center on Twitter, or finding them on Facebook. If you’d like to become more involved in supporting this organization, volunteer opportunities exist (email firstname.lastname@example.org). By doing so, you would help make women and children safer in Atlanta.
