About Our Featured Charity

Grace Smith House “An open door for victims of domestic violence.”

Grace Smith House Logo

A portion of the proceeds from this bout will go to raise funds and collect goods for the Grace Smith House. We selected this organization because of their mission to empower victims of domestic violence. Roller derby is about empowerment and we cannot think of a more empowering goal than putting a stop to violence. Take a moment to explore more about our charity and learn what kind of work is happening in our communities.

The mission of Grace Smith House, Inc. is to enable women and their children to live free from domestic violence through:

  • Providing shelter and apartments, advocacy, counseling and education
  • Raising the consciousness of the community regarding the extent, type and seriousness of domestic violence.
  • Initiating and taking positions on public policies in order to provide options, which empower victims of domestic violence.

Grace Smith House is a private not-for-profit domestic violence agency, which provides both residential and non-residential services to victims of domestic violence and their children.

In the late 1970′s, when the idea for the Grace Smith House shelter was born, no one envisioned that our organization would serve over 2,500 families in flight from their personal domestic violence horror each year. Today, Grace Smith House has grown from one crisis shelter at its inception in 1981, to two shelters, one second stage housing and our Follow-up and Non-Residential programs. Our programs provide Adult & Child counseling, Family Court advocacy, Child Protective Services, Social Services advocacy, Life Skills training, continuing Support Groups and education about domestic violence.

While we are pleased to have served and aided so many families and individuals, there is still so much more that can be done to attain our ultimate goal of “enabling women and children to live free from domestic violence”.

Besides providing a safe place, where the victims can start their healing process and work towards leading lives free from violence, our mission is to educate the community about the extent, type and seriousness of domestic violence and to initiate a public policy in order to provide options that empower victims of domestic violence.” (www.gracesmithhouse.org/about-us)

Charity Bout 2012: Roller Derby Whips Cancer!

Roller Derby Whips Cancer Charity Bout Flyer

The Hudson Valley Horrors and Man’s Ruin Roller Derby have joined forces in the spirit of giving to Support the Brittany Miller Foundation, a pediatric cancer fund.
The Brittany Miller Foundation is a charitable organization formed in the fall of 1995 to fill a great need in our community: providing financial assistance to families from the Hudson Valley who have children undergoing long-term medical treatment for cancer. Funds raised will not be used to pay for
the child’s actual medical care; rather, donations will be made to families for other “hidden” costs, including hotels, restaurants, tolls, gasoline and other miscellaneous expenses incurred by families who must take sick children to hospitals or other facilities for frequent treatments.
The Foundation raises funds and disperses the same to families from the New York counties of Orange, Sullivan, Ulster, Dutchess, and Pike County PA who have children diagnosed with cancer.

100% Of the Proceeds from this even will Benefit this Charitable Initiative.

Please join us in helping this amazing cause.
You will get to see Man’s Ruin V. South Jersey in a Co-ed Derby Dual played under M.A.D.E Regulations and Horrors Special presentation Derby Noir V. Derby Rougue played under W.F.T.D.A Rules. You can have fun and help those in need!
