Futures Without Violence – San Francisco Bay Area Charity
Fastmetrics will be highlighting the work of a different San Francisco Bay Area charity every week. We feel charities such as Futures Without Violence can never receive too much coverage in the media or online.

Bay Area charity with national and global reach
As the San Francisco Bay Area is close to our heart, we’re pleased to be posting about Futures Without Violence first up. Their head office and Center for Leadership is located at 100 Montgomery Street, The Presidio, San Francisco, CA 94129. The organisation also has office locations in Washington D.C and Boston.
This charity’s mission is very clear; “everyone has the right to live free of violence”. Under the direction of Esta Soler, this organisation provides education, training, policy and public action development to end violence against women, children and families. They have been doing so for 30 years.
Great achievements to end violence
In 1994, Futures Without Violence played an integral role in developing the landmark Violence Against Women Act passed by the U.S. Congress. To this day, the organisation encourages and promotes public action and support for policies which encourage action against violence. Not just in the United States, but also worldwide.
How you can help today
You can do something right now by urging President Obama to fund programs which prevent and respond to violence against women and children globally. Here’s how you can take action and make a difference.
Training programs and information
Ongoing leadership and training programs are provided from the offices of Futures Without Violence to doctors, nurses, coaches and judges to improve responses to violence and abuse. These programs are also used to foster ongoing dialogue about preventing gender-based violence and child abuse.
