“I hope you dance.” – LeeAnn Womack
(Insert personal story) I chose to create Steph’s Dance in honor of my late friend, Stephanie Roller, who was lost to the world at the hands of domestic violence in 2010.
Ever since her passing I have dedicated myself to advocating on the behalf of other abuse victims. The statistics are staggering. There are several amazing organizations who are dedicated to giving a voice to the victims of domestic violence.
Summit Advocates – Advocates for Victims of Assault, Inc. is located in Summit County, where Steph died. They provides services and education which promote safety and justice for victims of domestic violence, sexual assault and trauma.
Justice and Mercy Legal Aid Clinic – A Christian legal aid clinic in Denver, JAMLAC offers legal advocacy for domestic violence victims unable to pay for family law services. They represent a large number of Spanish speaking clients in the Denver area, ensuring that lack of resources doesn’t affect justice.
SafeHouse Denver – Advocates at SafeHouse Denver are dedicated to caring for domestic violence victims through emergency safe shelter for women and their children; offering advocacy, counseling and ongoing support for domestic violence survivors.
