Amy's Courage Fund is in the running for a $250,000 grant from the Pepsi Refresh Project!  Just think for a moment how much this grant could do for those in need of emergency funding.

Amy's Courage Fund helps survivors of domestic violence pay for everyday things.  NNEDV recently helped Kimberly, whose abuser slashed her tires and broke the windshield of her car to try to prevent her from escaping.  With the help of Amy's Courage Fund, Kimberly repaired her car and bought new tires.  Now she can go to work and live financially independent from her abuser.  She feels that her life is finally coming back together and looks forward to a brighter, safer future.

"I couldn't have done it without the help of Amy's Courage Fund," Kimberly said.  "There is life after abuse."
