On Oct. 21 at 6 p.m. Eliza’s Helping Hands will host its first virtual fundraiser. COVID-19 has prevented Eliza’s from having a large gathering this year, so in lieu of presenting the first Purple Gala, Eliza’s will instead feature a small documentary featuring Grammy award winning “Public Enemy” group member Professor Griff, motivational speaker Busta Brown, local actors, community leaders, and survivors discussing domestic violence and how COVID has changed their lives. 

Eliza’s Helping Hands, owned by Kenya Thornton, is a local non-profit whose focus is to serve men, women and children affected by domestic violence, sexual assault, human trafficking, and other violent crimes that affect our community. We advocate for social justice for those who typically don’t have a voice.

Eliza’s services to victims include crisis intervention, safety planning, needs assessments, addressing confidentiality, case management, information and referrals. Support groups are also offered for victims of domestic abuse, including rape and sexual abuse, incest, child abuse (accompanied by non-offending parent), for those grieving the loss of a domestic violence homicide victim, as well as families and friends of victims, which will help them address their own reactions to victimization and more effectively support the victim.

Eliza’s counseling services cater to the needs of individuals and families who have been victims of domestic crimes and abuse. Our philosophy is one that supports and encourages the active participation of our clients in their treatment.

Due to COVID-19, domestic violence victims have tripled and resources to provide victims with proper care have become limited. Donations to support the work of Eliza’s Helping Hands can be made at To register to attend the inaugural Virtual Community Discussion, please follow us on Facebook at Eliza’s Helping Hands, Inc.
