The official beginning of Spring, 2012 is almost here, with signs popping up all around Besaw's. All this sunshine (and snow!) and budding flowers has us thinking about new beginnings and new life. It is in that spirit that Besaw's has chosen Bradley Angle as our featured charity for the month of March.

In 1975, Bradley Angle became the first domestic violence shelter on the West Coast (and only the fourth in the United States). We are proud to provide our aid to this pioneering organization, founded in Portland.

Over the years, our services have expanded to include a 24- hour crisis line, transitional housing, support groups, community-based advocacy, and three programs unique to Oregon: culturally specific programming for African and African-American survivors, an economic empowerment program called Making Cent$, and support for LGBTQ survivors.

Bradley Angle has a long history of providing local leadership to address unmet community needs and services for domestic violence survivors and their families.

Please join us in support of Bradley Angle this month. During the entire month of March, a portion of our proceeds from Dinner service will go directly toward providing Emergency Services, Transitional Housing, counseling and support for individuals and families in need.
