Nashville, TN, June 20, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- People filled in and packed the community room of the Church of Scientology Celebrity Centre Nashville on June 14th to see a concert and contribute to a cause: helping abused women. Featured artists Ben Tankard, Peter Britt, Dee Rock, Jon Statham, Deborah Bishop, Tawny River and Bobby Pizazz were all happy to help Safe Passage, a non-profit whose mission is to “restore families back into society after providing them with tools and life skills that empower and build confidence to succeed, develop personal love and the desire to give back to the world.”
Safe Passage is a Los Angeles based charity, founded by Trish Steele, and having offices in Los Angeles and Nashville, TN. According to an article in LA Splash Magazine, “Before the hit show ‘Extreme Makeover,’ Trish was already performing extreme makeovers on survivors of domestic abuse. Her organization provides shelter, job replacements, makeovers and their own place to live.” Steele even received the President’s Call to Service Award in 2011 in recognition and appreciation of her commitment to volunteer service.
According to thehotline.org, “approximately 33 million or 15% of all U.S. adults admit that they were a victim of domestic violence. Furthermore, 6 in 10 adults claim that they know someone personally who has experienced domestic violence.” Safe Passage is working to reduce those numbers by providing a substantial support system to assist those women and children to escape the violence and begin a normal, peaceful life.
Safe Passage relies for its funding solely on sponsorships and individual donations.
