Please remember to make a contribution this year and every year. Contributions are tax-deductible and will make a difference in communities across the state. Help spread the word and tell friends and family members that they too can support the Colorado Domestic Abuse Fund and help to end domestic violence. 


“At a time when the organization is facing reduced funding from government and non-government sources, these dollars [from DVP] represent essential operating capital that allow SPAN to continue providing the basic and critically needed services of safe, confidential shelter, counseling and advocacy for survivors of domestic violence and their children.  SPAN is already turning away hundreds of adults and children seeking emergency shelter due to a lack of space and there is frequently a waiting list for both adult and children’s counseling services.  Any reduction in funding would result in additional limits on the organization’s ability to meet the community’s need for services.”
