The time to get involved is NOT when you experience or know someone who is experiencing abuse. The time to get involved is now, our young ladies are accepting this form of behavior as the norm. I took my 2 year old granddaughter on this walk, she may not have known what she was walking for but it is never to early to get our children involved. Great organization, looking forward to the next walk/run event....

As board member, we are consistently finding ways to bring public awareness to the issue of domestic violence. Our events have included annual conferences, walk-a-thons, plays, and various fundraisers. Last year, our focus was on the area of teen dating violence, and this year we built on reaching out to youth by incorporating an Art Against Abuse poster contest into our annual Walk to De-FEET Domestic Violence walk-a-thon. We have and will continue to provide public awareness with innovative and fresh approaches to engaging youth and adults alike. BWSTOP is a results-orientated organization with a successful track record of providing services.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

that it is rewarding to see the impact and difference the work we do makes in the lives of person affected by domestic violence. Public service gives me a better outlook on life through the betterment of the lives of others.
