Hopeful Horizons dedicated a satellite office in Bluffton on Monday to serve victims of child abuse, domestic violence and sexual assault.
“As we work to increase awareness and assist survivors, our satellite office in Bluffton will help us continue to reach more people and provide comprehensive services to victims of abuse,” said Shauw Chin Caps, CEO of Hopeful Horizons.
The Wexford Plantation Charitable Foundation awarded Hopeful Horizons a grant to open the office.
“This is an example of high-impact philanthropy,” foundation chairman Jim Hicks said. “Hopeful Horizons provides proven solutions to the problems of child abuse, domestic violence and sexual assault. The impact of our investment will be repaid many times over, in lives meaningfully improved. Together, we are working to significantly reduce abuse and change lives.”
Hopeful Horizons formed this year with the merger of local nonprofits Hope Haven and Citizens Opposed to Domestic Abuse.
“I am thrilled that Hopeful Horizons will have a physical presence in Bluffton to serve our citizens and our neighboring communities,” said Bluffton Mayor Lisa Sulka.
“It is critical that victims of child abuse, domestic violence and sexual assault know they aren’t alone. Hopeful Horizons offers free, confidential, comprehensive services under one roof. Their presence will be a great addition to the Bluffton community.”
