Financial donations are the best way to provide immediate help to the women and children who are in need of urgent support.

When​ ​victims​ ​show​ ​up​ ​at​ ​our​ ​door,​ ​they​ ​come​ ​with​ ​very​ ​little,​ ​other​ ​than​ ​their​ ​children​ ​and​ ​their​ ​lives.  At​ ​House​ ​of​ ​Ruth​ ​Maryland,​ ​we​ ​provide​ ​the​ ​food,​ ​shelter,​ ​counseling,​ ​legal​ ​and​ ​other​ ​services​ ​that  will​ ​ensure​ ​their​ ​continued​ ​survival.

It’s​ ​not​ ​a​ ​small​ ​undertaking,​ ​especially​ ​since​ ​police​ ​estimate​ ​that​ ​there​ ​are​ ​more​ ​than​ ​200,000  incidents​ ​of​ ​domestic​ ​abuse​ ​in​ ​Maryland​ ​each​ ​year.​ ​Your​ ​generosity​ ​makes​ ​our​ ​work​ ​possible,​ ​and​ ​in  return​ ​we​ ​work​ ​very​ ​hard​ ​to​ ​ensure​ ​every​ ​dollar​ ​you​ ​give​ ​makes​ ​a​ ​real​ ​difference​ ​in​ ​the​ ​lives​ ​of  battered​ ​women​ ​and​ ​their​ ​children.

We​ ​thank​ ​you​ ​for​ ​your​ ​support,​ ​as​ ​do​ ​all​ ​the​ ​victims​ ​who​ ​couldn’t​ ​live​ ​without​ ​it.
