MIAMI, October 14, 2019 (Newswire.com) - Heal the Earth Through the Arts Foundation, a nonprofit organization that raises awareness and funds for the underprivileged, was honored to support and attend the "Unmask the Masquerade Ball" this past Saturday, Oct. 12, 2019. The event was hosted by The Caring Place (formerly known as Miami Rescue Mission) and Girlfriends 4 Girlfriends and CoverGirls. The gala raised funds and awareness to help Women and Children coming out of Domestic Violence and Homelessness with mentoring and affordable housing. "These women and children reside in our centers and have suffered physically and emotionally. Approximately 38 million women suffer domestic abuse annually and 1/4 of all women go through some domestic violence during their lifetime. Funds raised will help place these women in affordable housing," said Lian Navarro, Gala Chairperson.
Girlfriends 4 Girlfriends are a tremendous group of women who want to help single women and women with children attain safe and affordable housing. Perhaps the biggest hurdle for women graduating our programs is to find safe housing. G4G is raising funds for various housing projects.
Cover Girls are a tremendous group of women who want to help single women and women with children break the cycle of abuse, neglect, and homelessness. Cover Girls are mentors who give of their time, talent, and treasure to help women in the greatest of need.
