Teen Ambassadors of Hope raising critical funds to support surivivors during the crisis
My name is Hailey Solis. I was introduced to Texas Advocacy project in 2015 when I was 14, when a boy who had abused me in 8th grade at my middle school returned to my highschool district, when officers assured me back in middle school that he couldn't return. I spoke to counselor, who directed me to Texas Advocacy Project. Texas Advocacy Project provided me with a free attorney to take him to court and get a Protective order on him. The order required him to move schools and lasted until 2019, when I graduated. They made sure I was safe throughout my 4 years of highschool, and I was able to graduate. Now I am 19, I'm safe, I'm happy, and I haven't seen the boy since 2014. My story will be attached in video form to this campaign. More info on it will be below.
I am currently selling shirts, sweatshirt, and tote bags for my campaign that represent Texas Advocacy Project and support for victims of Domestic Violence, with the links below.

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.
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.
