20 years ago my own sister was a victim of domestic violence and I knew back then that I had to help to break the cycle somehow, someway one day. I did just that when I joined the board of directors at Sarah's Inn and have seen the impact that we as focused and mission driven board members make in our communities. We bring hope to those who feel hopeless. We all have a civic and morale duty to our familiies, friends and strangers who face this tragic way of life day after day. We stand together in solidarity to say "enough is enough" and that we can no longer consider it someone elses problem, it's ours. Together we can educate and stop the cycle of domestic violence once and for all.
