Statistically, 1 out of 3 women, 1 out of 4 women, and 1 in 7 women have been victims of physical violence, severe physical violence, and stalking by a loved one in the United States. We serve the "ones" who have been caught up in these statistics by conducting educational workshops, holding retreats, providing mentoring services, making referrals, providing individual counseling, and providing scholarships to selected colleges. Our organization is unique in that it was started by a 46 year survivor of domestic abuse, who lived to tell her story. It caters to the "secret" victim, namely, the everyday woman who is educated, strong, or spiritual; the woman who is least likely to tell her story because of fear or shame; and the woman who is a pastor or a pastor's wife. We have impacted the lives of all such women since 1998, and we firmly believe that "domestic violence" does not discriminate. So we will continue to gather, support, and enlist the young and the restless, the old and the beautiful and all who wish to end domestic violence.
