Julie Weintraub has been a champion for many of the domestic violence victims we’ve profiled over the years.

The survivors you recognize on TV are only a fraction of the nearly 400 victims & survivors quietly helped in the last 8 years!

Court fees, counseling and more – paid by Julie’s non-profit “Hands Across the Bay”. The charity she started has gone into high schools and delivered more than 90,000 hand-outs on Teen Dating Abuse Awareness & Prevention!

Another 1,000 families in crisis have been helped too.

It turns out the little girl who dreamed of owning her own business, starting her first lemonade stand even before kindergarten, grew up to be so much more.
