This endowment was established to support the operating and capital needs of Mutual Ground, Inc. of Aurora.
Incorporated in 1975, Mutual Ground serves the victims of domestic violence and sexual assault in Kendall and southern Kane Counties.
The agency’s shelter for women and children is the second oldest in the State of Illinois.
Other services provided by the agency include a twenty-four hour bilingual crisis line, medical and legal advocacy, a transitional housing program and prevention education programs.
All Mutual Ground programs are aimed at empowering victims to have safe, independent and violence-free lives.
