HOUSE OF DELIVERANCE FOR BATTERED WOMEN's Fundraiser:

House Of Deliverance For Battered Women

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.

* Assistance with basic needs

* Safety planning

* Navigating the legal system

* Danger and lethality assessment

* Vocational training and support

* Empowerment toward financial independence

* Social and life skills classes

* Healthy living for teens groups

     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.

 Our Fundraiser

Our goal is to raise $100.000. Will you please help us reach that goal? We have from September 2nd to the 3rd of October to make this happen, and remember no donation is too small.

Thank you in advance for your support.
