Everyone knows someone.

We are your bankers, business owners, teachers, housekeepers, your students, your neighbors, your family… Domestic, dating and sexual violence happens here, and it happens a lot. It can happen to anyone. Whether you realize it or not, everyone knows someone.

Since COVID-19 erupted in 2020, calls to EFC’s hotline increased almost 300% and the numbers are still rising.

The good news is that people are calling – and that’s in large part because you are spreading the word. Yet with this huge increase, we are stretched to the bone.

Determination, passion, and your support keep us going, but extraordinary need calls for extraordinary action.

Last year, alongside elected leaders, our community partners (including the NAACP – Berkshires, Berkshire Pride, and Berkshire Immigrant Center), and supporters like YOU, we took to the streets united to stop the violence and raised over $115k for Elizabeth Freeman Center!

This year, we hope to raise $125,000, and we need YOU to make that possible.

Rise Together involves a three month press and social media campaign. It will culminate in September with six community walks – in Williamstown, North Adams, Pittsfield, Lenox, Lee, and Great Barrington. As a sponsor, you send a strong message to Berkshire County that you RISE TOGETHER with your community for a violence-free future where all people can live with safety, justice, and dignity.
