Annual Report
While LifeWire has successfully grown our facilities and programs for survivors of domestic violence, so, too, has the number of domestic violence victims. According to the Journal of the American Medical Association, domestic violence is the leading cause of injury to women ages 15-44, more common than automobile accidents, muggings, and cancer deaths combined. Domestic violence crosses all races, religions, ages, sexes, geographic locations, sexual orientations, and financial and social standing. Every nine seconds a woman in the United States is battered, and one in four women will experience domestic violence in her lifetime, (Costs of Intimate Partner Violence Against Women in the United States, 2003) equating to over 1.5 million women annually (Source: US Department of Justice).

Strategic Plan
LifeWire has launched a five-year strategic plan that builds on our intention to be a leader in the domestic violence movement with innovative and effective programs that make a difference in peoples’ lives. Our key goals include:
  1. Increase emphasis on and resources for community engagement, education and policy reform.

  2. Reframe domestic violence as a human rights issue, and ensure that this new understanding of domestic violence infuses our organizational identity, services and business model.

  3. Make LifeWire’s services more accessible to marginalized populations such as low income community members, immigrants and refugees and the GLBT population.

  4. Determine and implement the most effective use of our capital assets to deliver our services and achieve our strategic plan.

  5. Diversify and stabilize our funding to increase the breadth of donors and secure multi-year commitments.

LifeWire's Board of Directors and staff are committed to utilizing the strategic plan to guide our decision-making and measure our successes. We look forward to the challenges ahead and envision a society free from oppression where all people are safe and can live productive and healthy lives.
