We are hoping to touch your heart with the truth and remind you that you have been blessed. Because there are so many women who need a loving hand of support which will make a difference in their life. Some of you have been spared from the brutality of childhood sexual abuse and assault or rape and sexual trafficking; you are the fortunate ones, and I truly thank God that you have been excluded from such a painful reality. Unfortunately, there are women who were not as fortunate as you. Many have suffered for years in a painful state, lost and uncertain of where their lives are headed. Some women don't know where they are going and some even wonder if they will live to see another day. Sadly, there are survivors in every generation and there will be more lives to help and heal in the future.

Some people wonder why some women/young women are out there in the streets drinking, using drugs and being promiscuous. Do you truly believe that they really want to be out there, hurting themselves while at the same time they are dying inside? Is it because they want to do what they are doing? No! There are many, many reasons why they're out in the streets... too many reason to write about here. Some women's actions and behavior are do to many reasons; but I'll give you four examples... Some women come from a severely dysfunctional home where they either have been raped or sexually abused as children. Other women come from a family where alcohol was present at all times, and never received the love and parenting they needed. Some women were emotionally neglected and abandoned as children within their own homes and left to fend themselves. Some women where raped as young teenagers and never told anyone, and as it festers inside of them they became lost in thought and emotions, feeling dirty, worthless and ashamed. In doing so they begin to neglect themselves, they stop doing the things they love and in anger and pain they turn to drugs and alcohol, not knowing what to do with the storm within themselves. The pain within some women becomes so unbearable that they can't face the pain within themselves; they can't deal with the pain surrounding their lives and the situations they find themselves in. Some women are passing down the abuse to their children, therefore making more victims for the future. These women are lost, trapped in a cycle in which they don't know how to get out of. They don't know how to love or how to be loved. Some of these women don't know what love is, leaving them in a place of confusion and dismay. They need our help, they need your help, they need a place to heal and find meaning and hope in their lives again. They are not the only one’s suffering, there are women who appear to have a good life, yet they are also suffering in silence because they have a reputation to uphold. Some are housewives who are also suffering in silence, who feel dirty every time they are intimate with their husbands. There are women in churches who are also suffering, but they to have to keep up a front and hid their pain. All these women long to be loved, wanted and needed, but every type of abuse brings shame, they fear others finding out, so they pretend to be happy, yet they are not.
