DFW Nonprofit Resource Group announces grant

Written by Mindia Whittier

Donation will help provide safety, shelter and support for women and children fleeing domestic violence

Genesis Women’s Shelter & Support has been awarded $2,000 in recognition of its work to provide safety, shelter and support for women who have experienced domestic violence.

The contribution was made by DFW Nonprofit Resource Group, which builds connections between mission-friendly service organization professions within local communities. Members make an impact via contributions of food, surplus and supplies, and targeted donations to nonprofits that strengthen families and revitalize neighborhoods.

Genesis Woman’s Shelter & Support opened in 1985 as a safe place and way out for victims of abuse. The organization also raises awareness about the cause, prevalence and impact of domestic violence. Last year, Genesis served 3,700 women and children with its emergency shelter, counseling and housing services.

The donation to Genesis was made possible through the generosity of Jessica Gruber with Buzzworks Creations, Michelle Crim with Dynamic Development Strategies, Kim Crawford with Sutton Frost Cary, LLP, Tawnia Wise with Wise Resource Development, Keith Thode with AdvanceNet, Christian Bridges with Caprock Wealth Advisors and Michelle Berdnt with OneShare Health.   

Nonprofits can register online to become a host for DFW Nonprofit Resource Group. Selected nonprofits are asked to prepare a 30-45 minute presentation for mission-minded businesses in the Dallas/Fort Worth area about the charitable organization’s mission, programs, impact and more. The nonprofit also shares how the community can help the organization most, such as providing volunteers, donating resources or sharing accomplishments through the DFW Nonprofit Resource Group’s network.
