Mission & Vision
Family Rescue is dedicated to eliminating domestic violence in the Chicago community by providing comprehensive support services and shelter to victims of domestic violence, particularly abused women and their children, engaging in advocacy to promote future system change, and encouraging prevention through community education.
Family Rescue envisions a world where safety and well being is a shared responsibility within and among families and communities, achieved only when the most vulnerable among us is safe, and a society free of violence is a reality for all.
Programs & Services
One woman at a time, Family Rescue has become one of Illinois’ largest and most comprehensive domestic violence agencies. We host four major programs including safe refuge and support and bilingual services from counseling to shelter and life in between.
Family Rescue is proud to announce that it is one of four local non-profits to receive a $100,000 transformational grant from Impact 100 Chicago!
On May 26, 2016 the City Chapter of Impact 100 Chicago, a philanthropic women’s organization, awarded four transformational $100,000 Impact Grants and three $7,000 Merit Grants to Chicago-area nonprofits at their annual Grant Awards Celebration.
“The power of Impact 100 Chicago is connecting women who want to make a difference to amazing non-profits to help them fund their missions” Georgy Ann Peluchiwski, President, City Chapter.
What Is Domestic Violence?
Any act carried out with the intention of physically or emotionally harming another person who is related to you by blood; present or prior marriage or common law marriage; having (or allegedly having) a child in common; having (or have had) a dating relationship. This also includes a person with a disability and their personal assistant.
Family Rescue offers volunteers an opportunity to make a difference in people’s lives by working directly with victims of domestic violence. All of our programs are always in need of your volunteer support.
