I AM ENOUGH. Such magic words. But are they true for you?
These words were not true for Megan Fenyoe. She has gone through many struggles throughout her life most recently being involved in a narcissistic abusive marriage. When she finally left that marriage, Megan was left traumatized, empty and damaged. Often times she had no idea how she was going to continue. She felt alone with no one to turn to, sound familiar?
When she tapped into her inner being, the messages she received during this time were: “You are worthless.” “You are not wanted.” And the worst one… “You are not good enough.” Have you ever had this destructive inner dialog?
Megan began questioning if she was enough. Questioning if she was good enough to ever be in a loving relationship, to be an entrepreneur, to have a successful speaking career, etc. For many years she was living a life without meaning and purpose. Are you in search of your purpose?
On February 15th, 2018, Megan walked away from her ex-husband and the narcissistic abuse she endured for 6 long years and began her healing journey. During her healing process, she wrote on a note card why she was enough and began repeating this day after day. Every time she thought, “I’m not good enough” on her internal card. What does your card say?
Once she came to believe that she truly was enough, Megan began visualizing how she wanted to make an impact on the world and on August 15th, 2018 she released her book You Are Enough: 5 Steps To Move From Struggle To Strength and became a Best-Selling Author.
Soon after her book was released Megan became yet again restless and wanted a way to reach more people and empower them towards change. Being a Mental Health Therapist for the last 15 years, she has taught her clients the power of visual coping skills, so “why not give visual coping cards away for free and teach people how to use them to begin to believe they are enough.”
On February 15, 2019, a year after walking away from her ex-husband, Megan launched the I AM ENOUGH Movement. This message resonated and the movement organically grew through social media, podcasts, TV/radio interviews etc.
Within in 1 year of the movement being launched, Megan sent over 6,000 FREE visual coping cards to 18 countries and all 50 states.
Wanting to serve even more people, especially women affected by domestic violence, Megan made the decision to take the movement to the next level. November 2019, the I AM ENOUGH Movement became a 501c (3) non-profit organization! Giving her the ability to serve a tribe with similar struggles.
In March 2020, Freedom Haven was born.

Nationally 1 in 4 women experience domestic violence in their lifetime
Domestic violence is one of the primary causes of homeless for women and their children in the United States. According to the National Network to End Domestic Violence, between 22 and 57% of women and children are homeless at some point in their lives due to domestic violence.
While over 5,500 victims are served by local DV programs on a given day in California, over 1,000 service requests go unmet due to reduced funding for these programs.

Victims who leave their abusive partner multiple times due to domestic violence often experience multiple events of homelessness.
