The Illinois Valley Safe House Alliance has it’s much-loved Soup for the Souls fundraising event on April 8, 2022. The event is always well attended by the community and a great time is had by all. We serve soups made and donated from local restaurants, bowls made by local potters and students, dessert cake made by local bakers and homemade bread. We auction off cakes made by local bakers. We also hold a raffle and a silent auction of some great goods and services, and the music is always great! There is something for everyone!
The Illinois Valley Safe House Alliance is a nonprofit organization that has been working to address the needs of survivors of domestic and sexual violence in our area for more than 20 years. Since opening, we have provided services and support to more than 10,500 victims and their children. Our numbers continue to increase each year we are in the community and the needs have increased as well. Some of the services provided with funds raised from this event are emergency shelter, food, clothing, gas money, and help with safety planning, protection orders, and other safety needs.
If you or someone you know needs help, or if you have any questions or need more information, please contact the IV Safe House Alliance at 541.592.2515.
