The Allstate Foundation will present a check for $70,000 to Holly’s House, a non-profit organization that provides services for victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, and child abuse in southwest Indiana. Holly’s House is a non-residential victim advocacy center whose mission is to empower victims of intimate crime by providing support, promoting justice, and preventing violence.

Since opening its doors in September of 2008, Holly’s House has facilitated interviews for more than 3,600 adults and children while bridging connections between families and services with more than 1,700 recommendations and referrals to various community agencies each year. Holly’s House has also provided child abuse prevention education to more than 40,000 elementary school children. The agency’s services are now reaching eleven southwest Indiana counties.

Since 2006, the Allstate Foundation has contributed more than $550,000 dollars to Holly’s House. This grant supports the collaborative services offered by Holly’s House, Albion Fellows Bacon Center and the Lampion Center. Each organization provides unique expertise. By working together, with the support of the Allstate Foundation, these organizations ensure a continuum of services is available for survivors of family violence and other intimate crimes in southwest Indiana.

 Tom Schmitt, Indiana Territory Sales Leader for Allstate and Evansville Allstate agency owner Jay Rietman, will present the check to Holly’s House co-founder Holly Dunn Pendleton and Holly’s House Board President, Micah Prellwitz.
