I am striving to purchase and create a Home for domestic violence victims. A real Home, in which women can have the right opportunities and environment, to get their life back on track, begin to grow, and most importantly "stay alive" and be happy, instead of returning to their abusers. Please, help and share.

No, I am not a big company, or a big, well known charity, however, I am a woman, who has been there and I truly know, how these women "Need" to be treated and what they really need, to follow through and continue on their journey.

Shelters do not offer child care, when these women are out there, struggling to find a job, going to interviews. Shelters often call Child Services if a woman is not there the minute her children return from school. Shelters do not offer help in getting a job, women are usually on their own, trying to accomplish anything that which would improve their life.

These women need help, love, compassion, guidance, emotional support and encouragement. Shelters, do Not provide Any of the things these families need, to become strong and independent. Shelters are usually run by workers, who are very arrogant, condescending and have never been through anything like it.

Women, who don't understand -should not be helping these victims, just like you shouldn't take advice about marriage from someone, who has never been married, or about children, from a person, who had never had a child. They simply do not know the Reality of it. Yes, they have book knowledge, but life is Not a book.

I truly believe I am fully qualified for this, as a woman, mom, and a survivor, as well as a professional, caring therapist. Please help me reach my goal and make it a reality for women, who thanks to my determination, experience, compassion and love, will have a chance at a better, safer life from then on :)

"Domestic Violence" is Real and it can happen to anyone.
Abuse happens in families of all backgrounds and social status.
I want to create a different environment for these families. This will be a Real Home and they will be treated like real family.

* They will learn to be self sufficient,

* express themselves artistically, * sew,

* learn healthy eating habits,
* to cook and bake,

* grow their own food,

* do yoga, meditate

* expand their knowledge in whatever they wish,

* get an education to improve their life,
* they will be helped with finding a job

* they will be provided child care
* regain their self confidence and
* learn how to take care of themselves & their children again.

They will be helped through private, not group sessions, to cope with and get past, their experiences and then to thrive in the life ahead.

We will teach them, that they are worthy of being treated kindly and that love does not have to hurt. Help me bring this goal to reality.

Your further support will allow "Serenity" to provide a safe removal and transportation for the victims, from their abusive environment. It will also assist with the purchase of beds and other furniture once we buy the home. Then on, a "start out" fund, or help pay for education and many necessary tools, once those families have been re-established and gone through proper therapy, to transition from our home, to independent living. We intend to be there for them, every step of the way and beyond, to also provide further support through therapy, if they so wish, after they are on their own.

P.S. Yes, I do realize there are men, who are "nice guys" also being abused by their women. With time, as we grow, I will also provide a section for them, as well as young girls, who are homeless, victims of human trafficking or have other troubles. I am just starting small. A bigger home, would require more money :/
