NCFM Canadian Liaison Earl Silverman Gets Government Grant for Men’s Shelter in Canada!

April 11, 2011

In Canada the Family of Men Support Society was awarded a government grant to help operate its mens refuge. This is a historical first in Canada!

Earl Silverman has dedicated much of his life to making this happen. At the bottom of this post is an address for sending donations. NCFM San Diego is sending $100 and I hope you will too. What follows my name is from John Dias.

Harry Crouch, President

On behalf of the entire international men’s rights movement, I want to congratulate and hold up as an example a fine brother in Canada named  Earl Silverman. He runs an organization known as MASH4077 (“Men’s  Alternative Safe House”), which is a domestic violence shelter that assists male victims of domestic violence.

This past week, Earl Silverman’s DV shelter in Calgary announced that it took in and housed its first male victim that had been both referred and funded by a $1,000 grant from the local provincial government. This is a huge deal in Canada. For the first time, a Canadian government agency has recognized male victimization from female-perpetrated violence,  funded a male victim with a grant, and referred him to a shelter that it recognizes as legitimate and worthy of funding. Outstanding, Earl Silverman. I hope that the man who sought out your help is able to pick up his life and carry on, and thanks to your help and the assistance of the provincial government he has a solid shot at doing just that.

This milestone was announced on two different Canadian radio programs, which are attached to this message as MP3 files, or downloaded at the following URLs. Please give it a listen, and also spread the word:

Please donate
<http://www.familyofmen.ca/index.php?pr=Contributions_Accepted> to this DV shelter. They’re the ONLY shelter of their kind — a residential shelter and not a hotel — for male victims of female-perpetrated violence in Canada. Almost all other shelters that admit male victims in Canada assist only victims of male-perpetrated violence — namely women and gay males — but they turn away heterosexual male victims of female-perpetrated violence.

Half a billion Canadian dollars are distributed to DV shelters for victims that are women and gay men each year. But now, with this grant, heterosexual male victims have a $1000 of that.

Make that their first thousand.

Despite the significance of this grant, it is barely enough. So I am asking that you — yes, you personally — send a donation right now to this shelter and assist them with whatever amount of money you can send. They deserve it, they need it, and if they can succeed then I think that over time it’s likely their success will be replicated throughout the country.

Make your donation checks payable to “Family of Men Support Society.”

Thank you so much for your support. And again, don’t forget to spread
the word. Congratulations, Earl Silverman. Well done.

    I hope that the government's future support will include a respectable interest rate.

waybackmachineOver the years millions of people worldwide have visited a National Coalition For Men website. Also over the years the site has changed dramatically, been taken down, moved, and otherwise uprooted. In those processes much information was lost, not recovered, and does not appear on this site.

File a Federal Complaint

If you have specific instances of discrimination against male domestic violence victims by any government-funded DV program anywhere in the U.S., please send all evidence you have to the following federal agencies as a complaint, and state that this violates United States Code, Title 42, Section 3789d(c)(1). Give them as much evidence as you can. They are supposed to investigate it. After several months you may get a letter back saying there is "insufficient evidence" and that they need more information such as dates and times of the discrimination, names of the programs and contact info, names and contact info of witnesses, documents or records, and a detailed chronological narrative. So, re regarding evidence, the more the better. You can send the complaints by email, mail, or both. Send them to: Office of Civil Rights Office of Justice Programs U.S. Department of Justice 810 7th Street, NW Washington, DV 20531 Office of the Inspector General inspector.general@usdoj.gov oig.hotline@usdoj.gov
