Annual Fundraiser (Virtual 2021)
Do you see her? She is one in three women experiencing domestic violence at some point in her lifetime, experiencing isolation, hardship, often loss of income and loss of support.
Will you help empower her? She is searching for hope, for healing, for a way to live out God’s unique design for her.
Join us throughout October for our fundraising campaign, #SeeHerEmpowerHer, and take action against the abuse that prevents her from experiencing God’s healing power.
Help us reaching our fundraiser goal of raising $100,000. Each dollar is matched by a current generous donor.
Who we serve:
Rachel*, a 32-yr old Black woman, is trying to figure out how to make sense of her husband’s behavior. He’s always made jokes about her earning more money than him, but now he’s limiting her access to her paychecks and complains about the time she spends with her friends.
She doesn’t want to leave, even though she often feels off-kilter and unsure of what is real and what is not. She hears inconsistencies between what the church is teaching (their theology) and what she sees in society. She’s searching for education, insight, and support, asking does God really see me?
Jasmine*, a 43-yr old Asian American woman, recently left her abusive partner trying to stabilize life for her two girls. However, the divorce is contentious, resulting in the need for a restraining order against her husband of 16 years.
She just wants her girls to be safe –not just physically, but emotionally and spiritually as well. She’s unsure who to talk to about her divorce, and the weight of it all is almost unbearable. She doesn’t know who to trust, especially God. She wants to believe God sees her pain but is doubtful and asks why doesn’t God help me?
* Fictional composite of actual women impacted by domestic violence
Hannah*, a 56-yr old White woman, left her partner some time ago. Recently, she’s come to realize she’s still longing for more, looking for more profound healing, especially now that her kids are grown, and she has grandkids to enjoy. She doesn’t want to pass along the generational impact of broken marriages.
The challenge is she’s always kept her focus on helping others and not leaving much for herself. She recently realized she hides how she really feels from others. She offers hope from Scripture for other people but struggles to believe it for herself and asks is God really good?
