COMMUNITY OUTREACH

At BrightHouse, we work to bring victims of abuse out of the shadows and into the light. We help those we serve shine, and work towards a brighter future for our community. When we walk with our allies, we outshine the darkness of abuse.

 

EVENTS

We’re constantly seeking new ways to bring attention to the important issue of abuse. By hosting and participating in local events, we can show the impact BrightHouse services have in our communities.

First Annual Kentucky Derby Fundraiser

 

BrightHouse kicked off a fundraiser on the First Saturday of May with a viewing of the Derby, auction items, food, conversations and tons of fun. We look forward to continuing this tradition in 2024.

Stuff The Bus

A bus is parked in front of Dillions Marketplace, shoppers are welcome to purchase items and volunteers load the bus. These items and donations help BrightHouse meet the needs of survivors. 

Dress For Success

 

Each quarter, clients are able to sign up for style sessions. Volunteers assisted clients in finding the perfect outfits and accessories that have them looking great and feeling even better. 

 

Next Event In July, 2023!!! 

Light The Way 5K

 

On May 22, 2022, BrightHouse and the Hutchinson community came together to Light The Way to End Abuse. Participants were able to make their way through the Stratica Salt Mines using flashlights and glow sticks. 

Look for this event to happen again in 2023!

"What Were They Wearing?" Runway Show

 

BrightHouse hosted a unique runway show, where models showcased outfits victims of sexual violence were wearing at the time of their assault. This event was part of a larger campaign to shatter the myth that women are responsible for being harassed or assaulted because of their clothing choices.
