NY Yankees’ Joe Torre Establishes Domestic Violence Foundation

New York Yankees manager Joe Torre has established a foundation that provides funding for educational efforts to break the cycle of domestic violence, the Criminal Justice Funding Report reported Dec. 3.

The Joe Torre Safe at Home Foundation was established in memory of the manager’s mother, Margaret, who was abused by Torre’s father.

The foundation, a partnership with Samsung Electronics’ Four Seasons of Hope initiative, plans to create an educational campaign to help individuals trapped in abusive homes. In particular, the foundation’s efforts will focus on the effects of domestic violence on children.

Information about the foundation and its funding support is available online.
