WELCOME TO OUR VICTIM SUPPORT PAGE
This page is designed especially for you! Our strongest desire is to save lives. Our foremost foundation is always your safety. That is why we have provided you with an “escape” button in the top right corner. The “Omega” symbol – meaning the last, the end. It’s time for the violence to cease. Take no chances. If you feel you may be in trouble, USE IT!
We sought to create a comprehensive web page where visitors from around the world can find encouragement and resources that are useful in helping victims of spousal abuse, domestic violence, rape crisis or child abuse – a place of assistance, education, as well as hope and faith – leading to freedom and empowerment.
For further information on signs of domestic violence, how to develop a safety plan, locate an agency or organization to assist you with options available to you, please see the links posted below. Feel free to post any questions or comments, or you may go to my website and request a personal message from me. To get there, see the right-hand column →
We also have various programs to facilitate delivery of books into the hands of victims and survivors, at no cost to them, as well as fundraising for nonprofit organizations working for domestic violence awareness. If you are interested in becoming a recipient or sponsoring a block of books for donation, simply go to my website, click on the “Contact” tab and request further information. To get there, see the right-hand column→
Please let us know if you find this page helpful. Tell us of any other foundations, organizations and/or agencies you have found valuable in the fight against abuse and/or domestic violence. We’d love to add them to our list of links.
Be sure to check out the Books page while you are here. And again, thank you for visiting. It is my honor to have you as a guest. Please come back often and remember to invite your friends to visit, as well. Share this page with them.
Iam honored to be the spokesperson for Heather’s Hope Foundation, Inc., established in the memory of Heather Rimmer – teacher, mommy, daughter, and a fatality of DV. Please be sure to visit Heather’s website. We are doing all we can to assure that her death is not in vain.
We dedicate this page to Nicole Brown Simpson, Sheryl Laird, Bea Reid Dickey, Theresa Robles, Heather Rimmer, Audrey Mabrey, Patty Andrews, Melissa Dohme and all the other true heroes in the battle against domestic violence, with special thanks to ABC Action News and their “Taking Action Against Domestic Violence” campaign that has helped change and save lives – media at its best.
