Preventing Domestic Violence

We believe everyone deserves a safe and secure home free from abuse, which is why TJX supports domestic violence service organizations in the U.S. and Canada. We specifically fund programs that provide a safe haven for those fleeing domestic violence along with the tools they need to rebuild their lives.

TJX has supported programs providing resources for victims of domestic violence for over 25 years. In 2009, we began a partnership with the National Domestic Violence Hotline with our first foundation grant and that partnership continues to this day. The Hotline is a free 24/7 helpline that serves as a link to safety for an estimated 324,000 people annually who are affected by domestic violence.

In 2018, TJX also awarded domestic violence program grants for nonprofits that provided shelter and support services for victims of domestic violence across the U.S. Among these programs were Harbor House Domestic Abuse Programs, Inc. in Wisconsin, Laura’s House in California, and Interval House in Connecticut.

“My son gave me the strength I needed to act; I had to leave [our home] to give him a different future. Eventually, I went back to school to become a community service worker. When I look at my life now, I am proud. I’m able to provide for my son ... Everything I went through made me stronger and more confident.”
