Fleet Advantage Foundation Donates $15K to Domestic Violence Center

Fleet Advantage’s foundation, Kids Around the Corner, made a donation of $15,000 to Women In Distress of Broward County, the only state-certified and nationally accredited domestic violence center in Broward County, FL.

“Contributing to the mission of Women In Distress is important since it offers us the chance to play a role in a cause that is focused on helping people and families,” John Flynn, CEO of Fleet Advantage, said. “As a company that is focused on family, we feel it is necessary to contribute to the mission of Women In Distress so that they can continue to help so many in need.”

With support from both the public and private sectors, last fiscal year, Women In Distress provided more than 29,486 safe emergency shelter nights to 548 survivors as well as food, clothing, safety planning, counseling and therapy, pet assistance and shelter. Nearly 60% of the survivors served in the emergency shelter were children ranging in ages from newborns to teens.

According to Women in Distress, in Florida, Broward County has one of the largest numbers of domestic violence offenses. According to the 2019 Florida Department of Law Enforcement Report, there were 5,634 cases of domestic violence in Broward County. Access to safe shelter and confidential supportive services are essential for survivors to begin the process of healing. When survivors of domestic violence are no longer safe in their own home, they turn to Women In Distress for safety.

Funding will support innovative supportive services designed to meet the growing and changing need for services in the local community, including shelter, advocacy and support, therapy, family services, legal services, economic empowerment, crisis intervention, child welfare services and financial assistance.
