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