Where you are enough

Inspiring domestic violence survivors to turn fear into safety,
helplessness into strength and belief that they are enough

Self Care For The Mind Body and Soul:

Self CareSelf-care is a term that is cropping up a lot these days, from the government, healthcare services and just in the news – but it may not be too clear what is actually being said when people talk about ‘self-care’.

It’s important to emphasize from the start that self-care is not the same as no care. When self-care is mentioned or recommended, it is an invitation to you to become the most important part of your own health and well being, not a dismissal or a refusal of help. Self-care means that you take control and responsibility for your health, well being and lifestyle. It means that you can maintain your independence and not become reliant on other services or individuals.

Self-care is about being empowered. By self-caring for life you will be improving your health and well being – forever.

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.

To believe something is possible, it starts with believing you are enough

To believe things will get better, the belief that you are enough — even if it feels distant and barely there — must be present.

Knowing you are enough is the start, the seed that takes root and grows within you, pushing you to be brave, take on the challenge or try anew.

Believing we are enough is what we all need right now. That beautiful and brave starting point that sparks ACTION, that serves as a catalyst for CHANGE.
Because we can’t officially “be” together, doesn’t mean we can’t “come” together as a community to support the important mission of the I AM ENOUGH Movement.

The I AM ENOUGH MOVEMENT is depending on this Virtual Run/Walk Event to help us get closer to opening the doors to Freedom Haven. While this is a difficult time for all of us, many women and children are in a heightened state of danger due to being confined and isolated in their homes with their abusers.

The Freedom Haven Virtual Run/Walk will take place from September 24-27, 2020.

Participating in Freedom Haven Virtual Run/Walk is a great opportunity to get outside, exercise and stand up against domestic violence in your community, be a voice for those who are suffering, and let them know they are not alone!

Register for our Freedom Haven Virtual Run/Walk and/or Donate TODAY to help us hit our $50,000 goal!
