Why is fundraising a crucial part of Rock ‘N Bowl?

For those impacted by family violence, the path to healing can be a difficult one. Over the past two years The Center for Family Safety and Healing did not close their doors due to COVID-19 but, instead, was there to fulfill their goal to end family violence and create safe and thriving communities. Unfortunately, the need was great with an increase in cases and services needed by these families. We need you now more than ever.
