I was in a domestic violence relationship with my ex husband for many years. I desperately tried to leave with my kids 3 times, there were threats of killing everyone that would help me to leave, also due to a lack of career and monies I couldn't bear seeing my kids without, not having a home where they slept on their own beds, I was in a place where I felt there was no end. There was the constant verbal abuse of I was a nothing, I will never amount to being anything, I should consider jumping infront of a train and ending my life, I prayed everyday for this to come to an end, it was a daily abuse. One incident amongst many, after coming home from work drunk, he started cursing because food wasn't ready, he choked me in the bathroom where I was bathing my son, I took my baby to the bedroom where he followed, grabbed him and dashed him on the bed, his little body bumped, I had to race over on the other side to catch him before he reached the ground, he didn't know what was happening, we were all crying hysterically, including my daughter in the other room, because I would always tell her to stay far when anything was going on. I left the next day, but there was not sufficient help. It was a provision of a safe house for a temporary stay, and I had to figure out how I was going to get an apartment without money.  So after having to repeatedly run to a shelter, hearing the horrific stories, seeing how many of us ended up going back, because we didn't have the resources, is why I formed this foundation.
​I want to give another woman an opportunity to leave, a way out, it breaks my heart when I see and know there are many women that wants help, but will sacrifice for their kids by staying.
1 John 3:17
But whoso hath this world's good, and seeth his brother have need, and shutteth up his bowels of compassion from him, how dwelleth the love of God in him?

As we work to create light for others, we naturally light our own way.
