I know very well the challenges faced by women who are faced with the decision to stay or to go. What do you mean? Domestic Violence affects us all. From the next door neighbor who is being beaten by her spouse, to the executive level wife who is also being abused and no one knows about it. In the life of abuse, there is a cycle of violence that unless it is broken, will continue to plague our young women and women all over the world who are beaten and abused in the name of love. Love is patient, love is kind...these are the words found in the Holy Bible in the book of 1 Corinthians chapter 13. Many women have been faced with a very difficult decision, do they escape abuse or do they stay and pray for the abuser to change? Great question! But in the meantime, here at R.I.S.E we want to offer a safer house where those who are escaping abuse can get away, refocus, reanalyze and be provided with real life options. Will you consider helping us by giving your best gift for the purchase of a safe house for women who have decided to leave?
