Sue Rock Originals Everyone, Inc is the internationally acclaimed textile charity committed to supporting the lives of survivors of domestic violence. With such a small percentage of women leaving domestic violence situations nationwide, we felt it was important to provide direct support to these women who have made the courageous first steps towards change. We use the needlearts to empower domestic violence survivors to heal from abuse and create a new life.
What We Do
Sue Rock Originals Everyone, Inc. provides direct support to survivors of domestic violence. From providing handcrafted apparel to teaching people how to make their own – our reach has extended to domestic violence organizations throughout New York City, and both nationally and internationally.
Domestic Violence Stats
More than 1 in 3 women (35.6%) and more than 1 in 4 men (28.5%) in the U.S. report having experienced rape, physical violence, and/or stalking by an intimate partner in their lifetime.
Approximately 63% of homeless women have experienced domestic violence in their adult lives.
Approximately 5 million children are exposed to domestic violence every year. Children exposed are more likely to attempt suicide, abuse drugs and alcohol, run away from home, engage in teenage prostitution, and commit sexual assault crimes.
Worldwide, men who were exposed to domestic violence as children are 3-4x more likely to perpetrate intimate partner violence as adults.(source)
On average, it takes a victim seven times to leave before staying away for good.
