BENEFITING: DEO VOLENTE INCORPORATED
Deo Volente, Inc., a 501(c)(3) organization, supports the serenity and spiritual growth of women involved in anonymous programs of recovery. Our founding members dreamed that one day all women affected by the family disease of alcoholism would have a place to retreat. The year-round retreat house was dedicated to the recovery of alcoholism following the annual Deo Volente Meeting on February 18, 1984. Today, Deo Volente Gulls own, operate and maintain a beautiful retreat house on the water overlooking Albemarle Sound in Kitty Hawk, North Carolina. Twice a year, Deo Volente holds large retreats of up to 160 women. These large retreats offer spiritual programs that foster acceptance, fellowship and shared healing experiences while nurturing the desire to grow in serenity. Due to storms over the last few years our retreat house is in need of major repairs, including replacement of the waterfront bulkhead, new windows and repairs to needs to water damaged ceilings and walls. The money raised will fund these repairs and continue the pursuit of our founders’ vision.
