“For every shift our paramedics work, and they’re on 13 paramedic teams, they see one domestic violence call. Every week, one of these calls is attempted strangulation. Yes, we deal with this in Ada County.” – Beatrice Black – Women’s and Children’s Alliance.
That was just one of the chilling but true facts we heard from Beatrice Black at our last Impact Club Boise event. The WCA took home over $11,000 after that night, because our Impact Club of 115 members (at that time) donated $100 each, to crowd source this amazing financial gift to the WCA. The Women’s and Children’s Alliance (WCA) provides safety, healing and freedom from domestic abuse and sexual assault. All services are provided at no charge to those most vulnerable in our community who have suffered the trauma of physical, emotional, sexual or psychological abuse at the hands of someone who many times has professed to love them.
