Some of the inspiration behind the walk: In 2011, there were 22 domestic violence related fatalities in Idaho. Every day in Idaho 638 victims of domestic violence and their children seek safety and services from community based domestic violence programs like Hopes Door.
Hopes Door, which opened in 2004, provides emergency shelter, food, clothing, and support for women and children who need immediate relief from domestic violence situations.
