We’re big believers in everyday heroes and encourage YOU to be the hero of your own story. Dress up and race as your favorite hero - personal hero, superhero, the sky is the limit! If costumes aren't your thing, we encourage you to wear bright colors. Share and tag us in your photos using #fearlessHV

We do this by education, prevention, advocacy, and providing comprehensive services, including shelter, to victims and survivors of interpersonal violence, human trafficking, sexual violence, and other types of crime victimization.
