Safe Haven for Stalking Victims

H Michael Sweeney  PORTLAND, OR
Stalking victims are often so traumatized and terrorized by stalkers that they can no longer interface well with 'normal' society. Here is a solution which needs your help...

Author H. Michael Sweeney, a consultant on personal privacy and security, has worked with hundreds of such persons over a 15 year period, and as result, has sought to establish Free Will Haven, an intentional community for stalking victims who can otherwise never feel safe. It is based on low-cost tiny homes and a high-security 'gated' community in a deep rual setting well away from 'society' at large.

Victims who have been so targeted tend to be unemployed or underemployed as a direct or indirect result of their stalking, many forced into early SS retirement or disability. Free Will Haven will be a self-sustaining community giving them a safe place to work with each other in a peaceful commune-like environment free of stalking threats.

There, they can live comfortably on less than $500 a month for food and living expenses, and own their own home, to boot! For most residents, this will represent an opportunity to once more set aside money for savings, instead of just 'getting by,' or worse, depleting any savings they might already have had. Free Will Haven will be able to house between 6 and 12 persons initially, and seeks to expand on an as needed basis. We have 12 persons who have applied, but each has their own logistcal roadblocks to overcome such that residency will grow slowly over time. 

We have land. We just don't have the funds to use it.

A partnership with Ascension Arts, a non profit specializing in sustainable life styles, service to others, and increasing human potential. has resulted in the acquisition of an initial property suitable for the project, which is located in Oregon near the Idaho border. They are also an expert in intentional communities and tiny home projects such as Free Will Haven will employ. This represents a significant investment in FWH for which we are most grateful, and therefore, anxious to take advantage.

As result, we now have immediate need for funding to allow us to establish basic access and utility services to the raw, undeveloped land, which would enable occupancy by the working partners and the first few residents, who can then in turn establish a 'base camp' and construct initial facilities.

We have two portable domiciles, a hot house and general storage facilities, and a variety of major appliances for shared community useage ready to go, but no way to get them there. We need funds to rent or hire trucks to transport items several hundred miles, and to insure basic services are in place upon arrival, and to establish appropriate site security.

URGENCY! The property became available to us in mid winter season, and drained all exisiting funds when finally acquired just a week ago. Yet in order to take advantage, we must occupy as soon as possible now that Spring is upon us. If there is further delay, we loose crop planting options which will become important later in the year for self sufficiency and economy related issues.

Most people have never had to live in abject fear 24/7/365. For stalking victims, the life-altering effects of such a life are quite similar to that of PTSD trauma. This project has been in works for three years, and is extremely well planned out, but it has never before been at a logistical or tactical point where it was appropriate to ask for funding. Funding thus far has been largely by dedication of profits from the sales of my books and T-shirts, etc. 

Please HELP. Victims, mostly women, many who are elderly, have no hope without your help. My gratitude as 'founder' of the Free Will Haven concept is as unimportant as my vanity. What truly matters is the constant gratitude of those victims who will once more be able to live a normalized life free of constant fear. Please try to put yourselves into their shoes for just a few moments, and if faithfully imagined, you will understand why you must help.

Victims of Stalking should please contact me directly about their options using the email addy below.

Thank you,

The beta site has suffered a setback, and the focus of our gofundme effort is therefore shifting. The original intent of this project, was to raise capital for establishing the beta site for the Free Will Haven community, to include costs of relocating the primary occupant who was providing their own money to purchase the land to the site, and installation of basic services such as electric power (unimproved land).

However, the principle party involved, a Free Will Society founding member, was not able to secure the land deal in a way which was workable, and in the end, was unable to close the deal with a payment scheme which fit their needs and ability. As result, despite being allowed occupancy to include additional residency by other stalking victims, they are being forced to vacate, and start over.

This is due, in part, to the principle's election to abandon the principles and membership goals of the Free Will Society and to completely control all aspects of the beta site venture, in deference to the original understanding and game plan. This was their right, as it was their money and their name on the purchase contract, and though we at Free Will Society do not deny that right, it has lead to a need to alter course.

Our fundraising efforts will now shift to acquiring our own land, and applying the valuable lessons learned at the beta site, which was rather successful in many ways with respect to the GOALS for stalking victims in terms of livability, economy, and above all else, personal privacy, security and safety from stalking fears. There were problems, of course, that these which naturally met and dealt with. From this, we learned and now better know how to do it the next time.

We therefore expect much better success for this reason, as well as the fact that will be in control and operating under our original guidelines and game plan, next time. We will not enter into a purchase agreement unless the terms are correct, the site is correct, and the ability to occupy it according to the original plan is present.

Meanwhile, now that Obama is out of office and Trump has reversed Obama's directives to the IRS to block non profit status applications to anyone considered unfriendly to the liberal agenda, we hope to reapply and obtain true non profit status, which will both eliminate the tax liability I personally face currently through IRS roadblocks to such status, and allow and encourage larger donations to persons who can take advantage of the tax deductions such status allows. The IRS was demanding applicants deemed 'unfriendly' (and only them, selectively) jump through endless hoops intended to delay and deter, including demands for lists of members and their personal information, which I refuse to provide, seeing it as exactly the kind of privacy invasion stalking victims already have suffered more than enough.

This update is from a Member of Free WIll Society (members there are financially and morally supporting Free Will Haven, most of them wishing to become residents, some sooner and more urgently than others). Each member has their own roadblocks and hurdles to overcome before they could possibly uproot themselves and relocate to FWH, and as often as not, financial issues are involved.

Here is one member's need and solution, and she is, much like yours truly, technically homeless at the moment, and incomeless (new word). She has started her own gofundme:

https://www.gofundme.com/2jqgmymc.

For the next 30 days, every $10 donated HERE on THIS gofundme, we will in turn donate $3 to her gofundme. But we also urge you to at least match that, or better, match your gofundme here, there, as well.

Her gofundme seeks to fund a motor home, which will provide both a means of transportation to Free Will Haven, and become long-term living space for her and one other victim, once there. That alternative to tinny homes is also my approach, while others may certainly choose to build tiny homes, instead.

Sorry for the delay in updates. True update this time, no 'lesson.' I'll be able to do a normal update w lesson, soon. But the delay was because I suffered a failed generator in the motor home which means no useful Web Access.

But we do now have property thanks to Ascencion Arts, and AA is on site with all their valuable assets. The problem at the site is that there is not yet power or phone, there, and AA has no transportation into town to arrange for same… or so it would seem. In point of fact I simply do not know, as we are waiting to hear from AA about such things, including exactly where it is (why I simply don't just go there and help out).

But we estimate a need for about $1,500 for power, in which case phone will take care of itself via VOIP. So please contribute now if you can so we can actually 'activate' the site and invite residents to join us… including me (I'll need AC power when I get there, or I can't continue to manage this gofundme.)

Meanwhile, and rather temporarily, I have managed to come by my own little private 'Free Will Haven' elsewhere in Oregon, where I do have power and other requirements met. So look for a more informative update, soon. THANKS!

But what I will say here, is that contact has been made with Ascension Arts once more and it appears that transportation issues are being addressed, THANKS TO CONTRIBUTORS who made the difference up between what we had and what we needed for the 3,700 miles of travel involved in total.

Here is the GLOBAL BROADCAST RADIO SHOW (from the United Kingdom) information. The URL shown will also let you access any archive information should you miss the opportunity to dial in live.

I'm a targeted individual (became aware of it last year when the shit hit the fan and I lost my job, had the head of a cat mailed to me, had numerous cats killed at the feral colony I feed,etc etc), Would love to live in an intentional community as I've read they purposely target people with limited resources. Together we're stronger! But the weather in Florida is much better, land is cheap, & mobile homes now have to meet hurricane guidelines (I'm in Central FL for 40 years and we've never had winds at hurricane velocity--you have to stay away from the coasts). "Park model" mobile homes are the cheapest tiny homes. Just some thoughts, as most people want to be someplace warm as they get old.

Teresa, Winter is not harsh in most of Oregon, it is moderate to light, depending on altitude, sheltering hills, proximity to the Columbia River, and so forth. The Dakotas, Colorado, even the central States and entire Northeastern Seaboard have much harsher winters. Florida has hurricanes, and tiny homes don't like that very much. This winter, we had two inches of snow on the ground twice where I am, in the foothills of the mountains (the kind of location I would favor for FWH), each lasting for about three days, and several days of light dusting. It dropped below freezing during both heavier snowfalls, the longest spell 10 days, the coldest three days as low as 15 below freezing (not below zero) with wind chill factor. Even with one simultaneous power outage for the bulk of a day (due to wind bringing down a branch on a power line), it was warm and comfortable inside, and cheery outside - I still walked in my open-toe sandals and no socks in the three inches of snow to walk around outside for things I needed to do - I just limited that to about five minutes at a time. With socks and shoes, of course (which I cannot wear for health reasons), that limitation would not have existed. I hope this addresses your concerns.
