Care & Courage Campaign


March 27th-May 31st

Between Friends is a nonprofit agency dedicated to breaking the cycle of domestic violence and building a community free of abuse. 

This agency provides a safe, violence-free, supportive, self-help environment for individuals and families in crisis. Between Friends' counselors empower individuals to make their own decisions and choices, rather than making choices for them. Between Friends helps victims and children to recognize that their experience is shared and that the problem of domestic violence is social and political.

Between Friends recognizes that sexism is a root cause of domestic violence, and as such, women are disproportionately the targets of this form of oppression. We also acknowledge that domestic violence is intrinsically linked to all systemic forms of violence, including heterosexism, cis-sexism, classism, racism, ageism, ableism, and sizism. Domestic violence affects everyone and our programs support all persons, regardless of race, color, religion, sex, age, sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression, marital status, national origin, language capacity, or ability.


As a Jamberry Independent Consultant, I am inspired by my company's recent founding of the Fight Against Domestic Violence Foundation to get involved by supporting the work of a local Chicago-area agency that supports individuals and families in crisis and survivors of domestic violence. That's when I found Between Friends of Chicago.


To empower individuals to make a direct and positive impact on the lives of others by celebrating the courage of the clientele at Between Friends and financially supporting the continued work of Between Friends. And to partner together to create a community without domestic violence where equality, safety, and justice exist for all.
