the project

Live Fearless Inc. is a non-profit organization formed in New York City developed to meet the needs and support individuals and families who are domestic violence survivors.  The Fearless Fundamental Pack Program idea was developed after a lot of research and feedback directly from domestic violence shelters as well as survivors who currently or once resided in a domestic violence shelter.  When asked, what are the most pressing needs for individuals entering a shelter?"   Live Fearless Inc. believes providing these supplies is one of the easiest things we can rally and do to support survivors.  The Fearless Fundamental Packs will be filled with items such as; toothpaste, shampoo, soap, lotion, and other hygiene products.  For children we include age appropriate items like; books, toys and crafts, so they can have some fun during a challenging time of change.

why we're doing it

Survivors who enter domestic violence shelters are fleeing from violent situations and often only come with the clothes on their back.  This applies to families as well, a mother will arrive with her kids and have nothing.  Every individual deserves to have basic supplies for living such as toothpaste, bodywash, shampoo, lotion, combs, etc.  Children need pampers, wipes, toys, books, etc...

We want to provide these basic fundamentals to clients to give them some peace of mind.  The security of knowing this is cared for allows them to focus on the larger priorities.
