Love Is Not Domestic Abuse INC

Domestic Violence Intervention

Tax ID 30-1038271


My name is Shekenna Valle at the age of 15-years-old my father gave my hand in marriage to a 33-year-old man who was a parolee. He had spent 18 years on death row until the governor of Arkansas commuted his prison term. Consequently, during this marriage I was physically and emotionally abused until I was 27-years old. I escaped in 1989 to California with my four children to a battered women’s home. My children and I stayed at the battered women’s home for a while, and they help us progress to a better life.  Even though, I have scars on my face and body due to physical abuse during this marriage. I did not let that stop me from succeeding in life. I received my G.E.D. and obtained a bachelor’s degree in Psychology. Also, I established this organization Love Is Not Domestic Abuse (L.I.N.D.A.) to intervene on behalf of women and children who encountered domestic violence. I need your contribution to help women and children live in a home without domestic violence.  Your contribution will help families regain their independence so they can be successful in life.

Love is patient and kind

Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude

Love does not demand its own way

Love is not irritable, and keeps no record of being wronged

Love does not rejoice about injustice, but rejoices when truth wins

Love never gives up and never loses faith

Love is hopeful and endures through every circumstance

1 Corinthians 13: 4-7
