Support Families in Transition

Help Domestic Violence Survivors

BEDS Plus Families in Transition Program offers rental assistance and support for survivors of domestic violence. With personalized case management BEDS helps survivors rebuild their lives.

“BEDS Plus sees too many women who find themselves homeless when they decide to leave their abuser. It is very common for BEDS domestic violence clients to have little or no credit, and housing is a critical step to security and transformation.”

— Miriam Martinez, BEDS Domestic Violence Housing Development Manager

This topic is personal for Mike McNamara, a La Grange resident and business owner. 

“My sister was married to an abuser for 19 years and a local safe house program saved her life three different times as she fled on foot with two babies on her hips. I’m on a personal mission to raise awareness of domestic violence, the realities of this abuse in our very own neighborhoods, eliminate the stigma and shame associated with this and raise money to help women gain their independence back from their abusers.” A used car donated to Mike’s sister gave her the means to obtain a job and stability for her family.
