I believe in people and sometimes we forget that we are important. We can think sometimes that we deserve abuse. When raised in this environment, this may be all a person knows. Living if fear of abuse is not living. A person should never feel fear within their home either it be from a spouse or a parent/ caregiver. Sometimes people just need to know that they are loved and they can live a happy life. My motivations comes from knowing that maybe I can help just one person and make a difference.
The Center of Hope offers many different services such as offering food or clothing, but what I believe is most important is they offer counseling. This can help an individual see they are worthy to be treated with respect and they are loved.
It is NOT your fault. You are NOT alone. THERE IS HOPE.
