Since I was a teenager, I have adamantly believed that everyone has the right to live freely and make their own choices. Victims of domestic assult, domestic abuse, sexual assult, stalking and human traffiking are denied this BASIC HUMAN RIGHT of! While I am lucky to have never been in an abusive relationship, I very narrowly manage to avoid one as a young adult. It was freigthening! I can't fully imagine what these people go through, and yet, I want to help all I can because they deserve the support and care they have been denied by others who claim to love them!
I believe Christ gave his life so that we are free to live our lives. Living a faithful life and loving others should be our response to that GIFT of GRACE given to us by God through Jesus Christ! Please help me offer HOPE and a SECOND CHANCE at LIVING FREELY back to these victims whose power and control was STOLEN from them! Please help me show them what love and kindness are truly like, and try to restore their power and control in their own lives by donating to the Center of HOPE!
Thank you and God Bless,

So, what is the NO MORE Challenge? That's easy! It's an online fundraising campaign. The NO MORE Foundation and Hopeline from Verizon are launching a fundraising campaign to assist organizations committed to ending domestic and sexual violence raise funds to help even more individuals and families victimized by domestic and sexual violence.
Most of us think domestic and sexual violence have nothing to do with us. But, did you know that 1 in 3 families will be affected by domestic or sexual violence? Odds are, someone you know has been victimized. It could be a friend, a family member, a co-worker. It could be someone you see at the grocery store, work out next to at the gym or sit beside at church.
The good news is that YOU can make a difference! An investment of as little as $5 can help provide hygiene items to someone affected by violence. An investment of $20 can help feed a family that left everything in order to escape abuse. An investment of $50 can help house a victim in a safe location. You get the picture.
Join Center of Hope in our fight to end domestic and sexual violence. You CAN make a difference.
Center of Hope is a refuge of peaceful existence providing innovative and compassionate direct advocacy, therapeutic counseling, and residential services to victims of domestic abuse, sexual violence, stalking, and human trafficking.
