~Battered
women's
shelter
eelebrates
* 4th year

By AMY MOON
Activities this month marking the fourth anniver-
sary of SAFE House, Washtenaw County's shelter for
battered women, represent a mixture of celebration
over the facility's accomplishments and concern
about its future.
Facing severe budget cuts-40 percent in state and
federal funding-SAFE House (Shelter Available For
Emergency), a part of the non-profit Domestic
Violence project, has been forced to turn more and
more to private sources for money.
EARLIER THIS month, the Ark Coffeehouse spon-
sored a benefit concert by Claudia Schmidt for SAFE
House, which pulled in $650, and today through Sun-
day Border's Books is donating part of its sales to the
shelter.
"We have really been hit hard by the budget cuts,"
said Susan McGee, assistant director in charge of the
shelter program. "We have to replace about 40 per-
cent of our budget, so that means probably a fun-
draiser per month for the-next year."
The money, McGee explained, is needed to pay
seven full-time staff members who counsel women
seeking practical help for themselves and sometimes
their children in coping with violent husbands and
boyfriends.
"WE'RE THERE as a resource and as a catalyst,"

McGee said. "Our program is designed to help people
empower themselves. We don't make their decisions
for them. What we do is show them options and help
them decide how to achieve what they really want,
whether that consists of returning to their husbands
or not."
Women can seek shelter in SAFE House for up to 30
days-enough time to take the initial steps toward
putting their lives together, or starting new ones, ac-
cording to volunteers and staff.
The House provides a base from which the women
can contact an attorney, visit a doctor, and find a job.
They also share chores of cooking and cleaning, and
receive counseling during the day from women's ad-
vocates.
"I came to SAFE House one night after a fight with
my husband," explained a former resident who asked
not to be named. "The fight wasn't any worse than
usual, but you just get to a point when you've had
enough. The next night would have been our third an-
niversary, but I just couldn't put up with, it any
longer.
"IF IT WASN'T for SAFE House, I would still be in
the position I was in, and that's no place for anyone to
be," she said. "Now, I've got a good job and I'm very,
happy. The majority of women would probably stayj
with their battering husband if not for SAFE House

Described by its organizers as "a
celebration of who we are, what we
are, and what we can be," the fifth

and exhibits.. '

Special, Projects-will include
workshops and discussions on topics
ranging from health issues and
President Reagan's budget cuts, to
male awareness.
"WE DON'Twant just students (to
participate)," said Carol Chung, an
East Quad resident fellow and

organizer for the weekend. "We think
it's useful for women of all ages," she
said, adding that men also are
welcome.

University graduate, will be one of the
weekend's featured speakers,

every day in East Quad's Room 124.
All of the programs are free and

Union board begins fund raising

By GEORGE ADAMS
For the first time in more than 15
years, the Michigan Union Board of
Representatives kicked off a drive to
raise funds from alumni for additional
renovations in the Union, according to
Marc Dann, chairman of the Union
board
Early last week, the UBR set a
newsletter/donation request to 1,000
alumni to "test the waters" of a resour-

ce which, according to Dann, is vir-
tually untapped.
The letter - composed by Harlan
Hatcher, former University president
and now dean of the alumni - tries to
revive the memories the alumni have of
the Union, and tells them about current
projects and problems.
The only problem now, according to
Dann, is that "the Union has lost touch
with the alumni, and we have to get

them back."
In addition to the letters, the UBR
will test a telethon early next year
which will be similar to a recent
telethon by the College of Literature,
Science, and the Arts.
According to Dann, the funds are
needed for plans of Union ad-
ministrators which have nothing to do
with the current renovation project:
"We have enough funds to do what we

are bound to do - the renovation of the
basement and the first floor - but we
also have plans for the second, third,
'and fourth floors, and for those we need
more money," he said.
The present campaign is unusual in
that it is almost entirely run by studen-
ts, according to Dann. "Everything so
far was done primarily by students, in-
cluding the graphics for the en-
velopes;" he said.
