Our 8th Annual White Ribbon Event: Tentative New Date
Date: Wednesday, May 6, 2020
To our Friends and Supporters:
Our foremost commitment is to the safety and well-being of our community. Due to the growing concerns of the Coronavirus/COVID-19 and the state of emergency declared by Governor Baker, we have canceled the White Ribbon Breakfast on March 24.
This fundraiser is a critically important event for the Jeanne Geiger Crisis Center that supports our Youth Empowerment Services and prevention programs in area schools. We are currently exploring creative solutions to reconvene virtually at a tentative date of May 6. As soon as we have more news to share we will post updates here on our website.
In the challenging days ahead, I wish you and your loved ones good health. Here are a few resources that I find helpful:
- Center for Disease Control (CDC): Steps to Prevent Illness
- University of San Francisco California: Feeling Anxiety About Coronavirus? A Psychologist Offers Tips to Stay Clearheaded
Stay tuned for more information from us soon.

YOUTH EMPOWERMENT SERVICES
In order to break the cycle of violence before it affects the next generation, the Center offers an innovative Youth Empowerment Services (YES) Program that uses evidence-based and nationally-recognized approaches to educate and engage girls and boys in breaking the cycle of domestic violence. Through three different programs, we empower girls, foster healthy dating relationships, and engage boys and girls in violence prevention. We are currently reaching students in upper elementary school through high school. Last year, YES programming was provided to over 1,100 students and faculty in schools across Essex County.
The Jeanne Geiger Crisis Center is a non-profit social justice organization that responds to the needs of families in crisis due to domestic violence. Our mission is to empower individuals and engage communities to end domestic violence. We serve adults and children in communities, from Ipswich to Newburyport and Amesbury to Lawrence, MA.
