ReEmployAbility raised over $2,500 through its “Referrals for Peace” campaign to support The Spring of Tampa Bay and bring awareness to the issue of domestic violence.

Throughout the month of October, a portion of every referral received by ReEmployAbility was donated to The Spring of Tampa Bay to support their mission to prevent domestic violence, protect victims, and promote change in lives, families and communities. The company also hosted a donation drive on Facebook to collect direct donations for The Spring.

ReEmployAbility supports not-for-profits around the country by providing volunteers through our Transition2Work program, helping injured workers heal through meaningful work. The company is proud to further support local nonprofits like The Spring of Tampa Bay with fundraisers and donation drives held throughout the year.

“The team at ReEmployAbility is fantastic to work with, and really cares about meeting the needs of survivors of domestic violence and their children,” said Mindy Murphy, President & CEO of The Spring. “We are so honored to be the beneficiary of their ‘Referrals for Peace’ and to be featured on their podcasts this month. Whether you’re a client here in Tampa or at another location throughout the U.S. – there is a domestic violence center that needs your support – and there are employees that can benefit from the life-saving services domestic violence centers around the country provide. Thanks, ReEmployAbility, for being a beacon of hope for survivors and their kids!”

 Since The Spring’s founding in 1977, they have provided a safe haven and comprehensive supportive services to more than 60,000 abused adults and their children in Hillsborough County, and they have answered calls all hours of the day and night from over 150,000 women in crisis. Every year, The Spring houses up to 1250 people in its shelter, approximately half of whom are children.

Thank you to all who contributed to support The Spring, so it can continue to be a refuge for survivors and empower those affected by domestic violence.
