1/7 – 2/15

As we approach Valentine's Day the most romantic day of the year, I am reminded of the hundreds of women who have shared their story's of abuse with me. Many think it was their fault for the violence. Most thought they could change the perpetrator or they have children to protect. They love unconditionally. When they finally decide to change their lives, they leave with little or nothing. Most have low self-esteem and witnessed their mothers and/or grandmothers suffer the same abuse. It is the cycle of violence that must be broken. At Sisters, we have opened our hearts to all who have been abused. Male or female we give them a new beginning – provide safe housing, help them heal, provide hope and nurture independence so they can escape the violence.

Instead of buying your sweetheart a Valentine's gift and Flowers “OPEN YOUR HEART” donate to Sisters and you will receive a thank you from us in your and your sweetheart’s name. You and he or she will have shared your love with someone who will remember your gift forever .
