With great pleasure the Irving I. Moskowitz Foundation has made a donation to Su Casa Ending Domestic Violence. The Su Casa organization is a nonprofit, community-based organization dedicated to the philosophy that every individual has the right to live free from violence or the threat of violence.
Dr. Irving I. Moskowitz and Mrs. Cherna Moskowitz donated through their foundation $500 to Su Casa. With the foundation’s donation Su Casa will be able to help provide temporary housing, food and clothing as well as any transitional help that may be required. This donation will also help with training programs, counseling, parenting classes and legal costs.
All services provided at Su Casa are free of charge, without regard to race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, religion, ability and/or socioeconomic status. They made this donation during Su Casa’s 30th Anniversary Gala. This generous donation secured the Moskowitz Foundation at the level of Peace Sponsors.
Su Casa and other similar non-profit organization are crucial in ending domestic violence. Helping people find the right step towards safety from domestic violence is something the Irving I. Moskowitz Foundation is dedicated to. Dr. Irving I. Moskowitz believes that everyone deserves a fresh start in life and free from violence. For 30 years Su Casa has worked to empower individuals and families to live free from domestic abuse and violence and to build partnerships with the community to end domestic violence.
The Irving I. Moskowitz Foundation is proud to team with Su Casa. Together they will be able to secure a better future for those currently in the program and hopefully one day rid the need for such programs to exist. A community of peace is something that both Dr. Irving and Mrs. Cherna Moskowitz wish to see occur. In the United States a woman is abused every nine seconds and with the help of the Irving I. Moskowitz Foundation that statistic will be reduced. Cherna Moskowitz feels very strongly in ending the suffering of women and children who are abused everyday.
Mrs. Cherna Moskowitz serves as president of the Irving I. Moskowitz Foundation. Annually, the costs of domestic violence exceed $5 billion, including $4 billion in direct health care expenses. This is a sad statistic; however, with the help of the Irving I. Moskowitz Foundation, these costs can be minimized.
The Irving I. Moskowitz Foundation was established in 1968 by Dr. Irving I. Moskowitz to help people in need regardless of race, creed, politics or religion. The Foundation is a charitable, non-profit foundation dedicated to improving and enriching the lives of people based on the precept, “He who has saved one life, it is as if he has saved the world.” Dr. Irving I. Moskowitz believes that through his community outreach he can make this world a better place, and we agree.
