Susan A Foundation is a not-for-profit organization committed to providing safe housing and financial aid to men, women, and children who are victims of domestic abuse. We strive to help individuals and families within our own community in New Jersey and anywhere else in the United States where we can make a difference.
My name is Jon and I am a gay male who was living in N.Y.C.
I met my friend in a club and we became very close and became partners. He borrowed several thousand dollars from me for a failed business venture, and as time went by and I needed my money back, he became abusive and violent.
I feared for my life and he refused to pay back the money he owed me. He threw me out of our home and I was homeless with no money.
I contacted Michael at the Susan A foundation through a friend. Michael put me in a hotel for two nights, and paid for my trip back to my family in Florida.
Thank you Michael and Susan A Foundation, and God bless! You saved my life 🙏.
Domestic abuse is a social issue, but also a public health matter that affects the entire community.
With your support, our big initiative for the remainder of 2023 will be to scour battered women’s shelters to relieve some of the pressure on these already strained facilities, so that they may make room for new victims.
