Caring Is Doing For Others!


   We are a small organization with BIG hearts! For those of you who have never lived in a home of domestic abuse, it's hard to imagine how helpless a victim feels. Domestic abuse always involves power-whether it's physical, sexual, emotion, or economic-and victims typically feel helpless as they experience the escalating number of incidents of violence at the hands of a family member. 


Mission:

We are committed to educating, encouraging, empowering, and providing basic necessities to survivors and their children transitioning to a life free of abuse. This is a daily mission for us, just as it is a daily challenge for them.

 

Caring Is Doing For Others demonstrates:

  • Compassion for others
  • Honesty in everything we do
  • Integrity(choosing to always do what is right)
  • Respect for everyone
