Mission Statement

Assist with counseling, housing and community aid services for women and children affected & inflicted by the issues of Domestic Violence, IPV, and Human & Sexual Trafficking for 6 months. Services we provide Family Advocacy, counseling and soon transitional home access

Description

What do we want?

  • Transitional Home

  • Safe Haven

  • Quality housing

  • Counseling
  • We want to provide 6-month sustainability and turnaround service aid for women and children affected by IPV & DV.

  • Family Advocacy Assistance

    How will this help our communities?‚Äč

  • Due to the number of human trafficking, sex trafficking, and Domestic Violence in Volusia County, we need transitional homes that assist our local area county agencies. Especially our police officers, sheriff's departments, and other county agencies that will alleviate the burden in our community.

  • We would like to one day provide a stay in our transitional home of 6 months rather than the max of 21 days when we acquire our transitional home. This will give us time for healthy mental assessment & aid, group psychological help, and on-the-job training and parental support.

  • Most victims who feel supported in a life group setting or getting help from a supportive therapist, counselor, or coach are viably more independent and financially stable and are less likely to return to their abuser. And will feel safer rather than those who have no safety of financial or emotional support.
