Teen Ambassadors of Hope raising critical funds to support surivivors during the crisis
Hello, my name is Finnley Willms and I am a Teen Ambassador of Hope! Teen Ambassadors are a part of the Texas Advocacy Project and I, along with my fellow Ambassadors, work to spread accurate and important information about healthy relationships, teen dating violence, stalking, and online safety. My personal belief is that everyone has the right to feel safe and my goal through this project is to have that belief realized and shared. This is my GoFundMe page to help fundraise for the Texas Advocacy Project. Since the Project is completely nonprofit, donors like you are inredibly important to allow the TAP to continue providing free services, such a legal help, to survivors. Thank you so much for your donation and please spread the word!

Texas Advocacy Project provides training on healthy relationships, teen dating violence, online safety, and leadership skills though Teen Ambassadors of Hope.
Teen Ambassadors make an impact in their communities by promoting safe and healthy relationships while raising funds to support the FREE legal services provided by the Texas Advocacy Project to survivors of domestic abuse and sexual assault.
During times of disaster and crisis, intimate partner violence increases and the severity escalates. Isolation is often the dangerous first ingredient for domestic violence. Funding for TAOH is more critical than ever.
-1 in 3 adolescents in the U.S. is a victim of physical, sexual, emotional or verbal abuse.
-1 in 3 Texans will be victims of violence in their lifetimes.
-1 in 4 women will experience sexual violence and 1 in 3 women will experience domestic violence in their lifetimes.
Goals for each Teen Ambassador of Hope:
• Champion the Mission and Services of Texas Advocacy Project
• Promote Awareness of Dating Violence and Healthy Relationships
• Raise a Minimum of $500 for Texas Advocacy Project
Through fundraising and outreach, Teen Ambassadors will compete among each other for various recognition awards.
