THE STORY:


Someone  asked me the question one day, "When did I start Living?" The answer to  that question is, I was always living but it was in a domestic violence  situation for 17 years. 

No one knew what was going on in my home for several years. Everyone  thought my marriage was perfect. "Oh what a perfect family" they would  say. Does this sound familiar to you?

It was not until I told myself that I had enough of this and there  had to be a better life for me and my children. When I made that  decision, that first step was probably the hardest decision I ever had  to make. But, I had to for my sanity.

I opened up to my pastors, family members and other organizations  that supported me. One day in 1997, after carefully planning my getaway,  I moved my kids and myself to another state to start my new life.

I found a job at one of the most luxurious hotels and took a position  in housekeeping. You see, when I was married I didn't have to work  which was another way my husband controlled my life. I worked hard in my  new position and throughout my work history I obtained other jobs  working my way up the ladder in various management positions.   I am truly a living testimony of someone taking back their life.  And  out of appreciation from what was given to me, I plan to assist other  women that are currently in the same situation I was in. Once you  realize that you are not alone, your journey will be a little easier to  travel.

House of Deliverance for Battered Women is a non-profit organization  founded in 2003, breaking the cycle of domestic violence one day at a  time. 

Our Vision: 

Empowering domestic violence victims and their families through their  trauma while providing a safe haven, resources, and life changing  programs.

Moving ahead is a human option 

Victims of domestic violence often feel isolated, powerless, fearful,  guilty and dependent financially. Domestic violence can leave victims  feeling trapped and with few options.

Domestic abuse can involve threats of violence, verbal abuse and/or  sexual assault.  H.O.D. is staffed with compassionate individuals who  are eager to meet the many different needs of our clients.
