About Project 31:25

Project 3125 is a nonprofit organization that provides resources and support for families journeying out of abusive situations. Our programs center around empowering families to develop a safe & stable life for themselves, as well as providing the resources necessary to navigate their challenges and thrive in our community long term. Areas of support & resource referrals are: legal aid, housing support, trauma therapy, all around life coaching and children’s services. The initial costs of necessary resources are also provided by Project 31:25. We do not distribute direct monetary support to families. To date we have supported 150 families with 87% of them living abuse free, self-sustaining lives.

About Domestic Violence

1/3 of women experience DV in their lifetime. (57,000 victims in Larimer County alone. Census, 2017). DV impacts the physical & mental wellbeing of a victim, producing economic hardships in both the immediate & lifespan of the victim. Crisis intervention has been the focus; however, statistics show that victims are significantly more likely to have economic hardship due to the long term impact caused by abuse (NCBI,2011). Impact like job loss with reported reasons as: lack of support system, childcare, inconsistent transportation/ housing, fear of danger by employer, court dates & harassment/stalking after leaving (IWPR). Victims who are stalked lose an average of 10 days paid work/year. (IWPR). Convicting an abuser is rare, even if so victims do not receive restitution. Debt & poor credit due to financial control/exploitation also dramatically undercuts the independence and stability for victims, i.e opening bank accounts, rental or school applications, loans. These are only a snapshot of DV’s long term impact on economic stability & our overall mission is designed to help reduce these impacts.
