WHY WOMEN IN YOUR COMMUNITY NEED HELP

WHY WOMEN IN YOUR COMMUNITY NEED HELP

Did you know that in the U.S.:

  • More than 1 in 7 women live in poverty?...and 4 in 10 single mothers are poor?

  • 250,000+ women suffer from abuse each year?

  • 22 million women have been raped in their lifetimes?

Women experience poverty, abuse, trauma, depression and anxiety at a much higher rate than men. Your next door neighbor…co-worker…friend…or you may be suffering in silence.

Ladies, we know you are Strong. Smart. Capable and Caring. But it’s those very qualities that can lead women to emotional burnout. Think about it. Women are the primary caregivers of ill/elderly parents in addition to caring for their children, managing their households, and working full time—often for insufficient wages.


So, if you’re thinking, “What can I do to help myself or help other women?”…here are two very important things to know:

1) Call the Samaritan Counseling Center at 412-741-7430 to GET HELP.

Samaritan provides faith-based counseling by licensed professionals who are compassionate and experienced at helping women overcome women’s issues. We help women regain their strength. Manage stress. And learn to take care of themselves.

2) Make a donation to GIVE HELP.

Over 60% of the people we serve are women. And more than half of them are uninsured, under-insured or cannot afford the cost of high insurance deductibles. That’s why we maintain our Silent Samaritans Fund: to help women in crisis who qualify for fee subsidies. But we cannot do it without your help.

Will you please join our Silent Samaritans—“women of strength helping women in need?”

$125 will help a woman and her therapist to identify areas of need and set treatment goals. A $42 gift will subsidize one counseling session. Any amount you can afford will help!

Please use Samaritan’s Go Fund Me page to make your gift—and don’t forget to share with your friends. Thank you for caring!
