The Resonate Foundation was established with the mission of making a significant impact in the arts, arts education and areas of critical need. Resonate is committed to being an asset in the communities where Resonate employees live and work.
"Because of the current economic climate, corporate giving in Silicon Valley has declined," said Lisa Breen Strickland, Executive Director, at the Support Network for Battered Women. "It's great to see companies like Resonate continue their support of local organizations. Resonate's generous contribution to the Support Network will go toward educating the community on domestic violence and helping the women and children affected by this disturbing epidemic."
"The Support Network for Battered Women is doing a tremendous job in serving the diverse community of Santa Clara County," said Peter Watkins, CEO and President of Resonate. "We are pleased to lend our support to this organization in hopes of preventing further violence in our community."
Serving Santa Clara County for 23 years, the Support Network has responded to the families devastated by domestic violence by providing comprehensive bi-lingual services to battered women and their children. The Support Network is the only organization of its kind in Santa Clara County that offers a legal program. Staff attorneys and a bilingual legal advocate assist clients with restraining orders, family law advice appointments, victim advocacy, and court accompaniment. The Support Network also offers a unique Teen Dating Violence Prevention Program. Trained high school students provide workshops to their peers on subjects such as power and control, growing up in an abusive family, gender roles, community responses, how to help friends and family members in abusive relationships and building healthy relationships.
In addition to its donation to the Support Network for Battered Women, Resonate is also participating in the Donate a Phone campaign. The goal of the program is to collect old wireless phones so that they may be refurbished for victims of domestic violence.
