“MSCFV wishes to thank the Mary Kay Foundation, Mary Kay customers that provide the funding for these grants, and the Mary Kay consultants that continue to promote Mary Kay Ash’s Go-Give philosophy that an act of kindness leads to an atmosphere of trust, caring, and relationship building,” said MSCFV Executive Director Jeanne Yeager. “Every year, MSCFV serves over 350 victims of family violence and their 500+ children as they work to end their cycle of violence and build strong, self-sufficient and loving futures for themselves and their families. We are so thankful for this recognition of our efforts.”
With the goal of helping victims end the violence in their lives, since 1980, the Mid-Shore Council on Family Violence (MSCFV) has been the central point of access for assistance on domestic violence within the counties of Maryland's Middle Eastern Shore. The mission of MSCFV is to create healthy opportunities to break the cycle of domestic violence through intervention and prevention for victims and abusers; and by changing society's attitudes and systems which permit and promote such violence against women, men and families. MSCFV provides services that span from crisis-focused hotline, legal services, and emergency shelter to counseling, education, economic empowerment programs and longer term transitional housing.
