About Us

Our Beginnings

Five women from a single congregation realized they were married to abusive men, who were also professing Christians. Furthermore, four of the five had restraining orders against their husbands. So, they met to learn about abuse, to encourage and support each other to honor God in light of the abuse they experienced, and to seek God’s will for their lives and marriages. In short, they sought healing in their own lives.

By 2007 the organization became a fulltime, nonprofit, tax-exempt organization (click here to continue)

Our Mission

Motivated by God’s lovingkindness, Hagar’s Sisters cultivates the emotional and spiritual healing of women impacted by intimate partner abuse, empowering them through care planning, education, and compassionate community.

Support Groups provide a confidential, safe place for women to share, learn and heal from abuse.
