Fearless! 35th Anniversary Celebration of Hope Gala
Providing Life-Saving Services, Empowering Survivors, Educating Our Community, Demanding Change

When: Friday, October 15, 2021
Where: Riverside Ballroom

New + Intimate space on the scenic Newburgh Waterfront
120 Front Street, Newburgh, NY 12550

For the past 35 years, with the confidence and investment of supporters and volunteers, FEARLESS! has woven a safety net necessary to build an informed, just, and accountable society so all people can experience supportive and safe relationships free from abuse, exploitation, and oppression.  We continue to do this through education, prevention, advocacy, and providing comprehensive services, including shelter, to victims and survivors of interpersonal violence, human trafficking, sexual violence, and other types of crime victimization.

Through local partnerships with fellow human service agencies, our  FEARLESS!  programs have only grown more comprehensive. We have made enormous strides towards the prevention of abuse, exploitation, and oppression across Orange and Sullivan Counties. We have reached thousands of youth to teach about healthy relationships and consent through an expansion of our Youth Education and Prevention outreach. Yet our work is far from done.

Our anniversary is a time to honor those who came before us and a time to thank those who have believed in our mission. It’s a time to celebrate the strength of victims everywhere and to stay focused on our vision of a world where safety begins at home and in our closest relationships. The safety of our neighborhoods, schools, workplaces, and communities depends on that vision, and we depend on each other to make it happen.

Our style, venue, fashion, and name may have changed throughout the years, but our commitment to our victims and survivors has never waivered. Take a trip down memory lane with us as we celebrate our 35th Anniversary.
