Domestic Violence Solutions (DVS) for Santa Barbara County extends its sincere gratitude to the employees of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices – Santa Barbara. Last month, an amazing group of agents hand-delivered 20 Christmas trees and accompanying holiday decorations to be distributed to survivors of domestic violence and their children. Berkshire Hathaway has been a corporate partner of DVS for many years and delivering holiday cheer has become an annual tradition.

This season, the company also awarded DVS with a generous donation of $2,150. Funds for both the Christmas trees and monetary gift were raised from Berkshire Hathaway’s philanthropic arm, The Charitable Foundation. The fundraising efforts were led and coordinated by Madhu Khemani. 

In the past year, DVS provided 5,755 safe nights of shelter to survivors and their families. The safety and comfort of residents at DVS depend on the support of outside organizations. This holiday season will be much warmer and brighter thanks to the kindness of Berkshire Hathaway agents.
