Each year, 3-4 million women are beaten and victimized by the partners in their lives who are supposed to love and support them. Although a majority of victims are women, men are also abused.
If you are a victim of domestic violence, you are not alone
Abuse…Physical, Emotional or Sexual. Abuse is about one person controlling another. It is a pattern of behavior. Many people do not think of themselves as being abused because they have not been hit. Does the person you love: slap, hit, anger easily, force sex, push, criticize you, call you names?
Nibbles, Novelists and New Beginnings
Hooray! We are thrilled to announce our first In-Person Fundraiser since early 2020!
You are invited to celebrate with us at our 3rd or what would have been our 4th Annual Nibbles, Novelists and New Beginnings Dinner Fundraiser. Due to the continued COVID restrictions we have scheduled our Annual Event (normally held in May) for Wednesday, September 29, 2021.

“I cried a tear today, I wasn’t certain why. I cried a tear today, I thought of all those lies. I cried a tear today, my babies cried for me. I cried a tear today, they saw me weep and bleed. I cried a tear today, he held me very close. I cried a tear today, he sent me a beautiful rose. I cried a tear today, he was begging on his knees. I cried a tear today, he said, ‘baby please don’t leave’. I cried a tear today, I was lying underground. I cried a tear today, but there was no sound. I cried a tear today, this time it was for my kids for if I could have done it different, I surely would have.”
