Reviews for Women & Children First the Center Against Family Violence

Rating: 5 stars  

Dear Friend,

On April 14th, 2014, two years ago, over 276 school girls were
kidnapped from their dormitory by the terrorist group Boko Haram.
These girls were studying for their exams and in the middle of the
night armed men ripped them from their beds, and most of these girls
are predominantly Christians in northern Nigeria.

Educated girls will save the world and now we must save them. The
future of Nigeria and the world depends on the rescue of all of these
girls and the stabilization of the country.

It is unconscionable for World leaders to be silent any longer. We
want you to demand that the Nigerian Government take action and rescue
the Chibok girls from the hands of these dreaded terrorist group.

The government of the day is currently doing nothing about saving these girls.

We urgently need your contributions, donations, support, efforts and
actions to speed up our effort to rescue and save these 276 girls NOW.
No amount of assistance, donation,support and effort is too small at this point in need to rescue our girls.

Sincerely,
Hadiza Bala Usman
Coordinator Bring Back Our Girls

Volunteering for Women and Children First has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life! The clients that are served by the shelter work so hard to help themselves that we as volunteers are inspired to work harder to help them get through these tough situations. The services and programming Women and Children First offers its clients and the community are truly invaluable and life-saving. Little Rock is fortunate to have this organization. Until we can put an end to domestic violence, I will continue to support this organization and the amazing work that it does.

I've been a part of and supported WCF for the last five years. This organization is truly changing the lives of those affected by domestic violence. They are the shelter in the storm of life for those who are going through such hardships and fighting their way to a better life.

This is truly an amazing organization... to help and support families in need and recover from abuse. It makes me sick to think of people out there suffering and feeling stuck- especially children. It's great that they have a place to go. I'm so proud to be apart of WCF!

It is amazing to watch the shelter help families in need of support and rescue! All the volunteers and staff work very hard to build up these women that have been brave enough to leave and begin to regain their lives. WCF touches lives all across the state of AR and has even helped those from out of state find a fresh start. The daily struggles of supporting all the residents needs are met head on with some wonderful people that don't take no for an answer! Constantly finding new ways to raise money and new ways to give hope to the women and children in need! I personally enjoy knowing that all my volunteer work throughout the year are giving these brave people the fresh start they deserve in life. Help break the cycle. Stop the violence! Join WCF to help!!!

I'm proud to be connected to a non-profit organization that not only works to support women and families experiencing tough times, but that is committed to lifting their spirits - through a variety of meaningful programs. I've known several women who arrived in need of help, but are now empowered and using their voices to effect change for those who follow.

This shelter saved my life and the lives of my children. We were clients in 1999 when I fled a violent marriage. WCF helped us put our lives back togather. They gave us each our own advacate to make a life plan and gave us the tools to acheive it. At one point in our lives we all contemplated suicide to escape, we thought it was the only way out. Now we enjoy everyday God has given us and are blessed to give back to others in our same circumstance. My oldest daughter works for a prominant doctor who adors her and she has 2 amazing sons. My middle child who was a shy little girl now has her doctorate in physical therapy and works with children with disabilites and my baby boy has a communications major, was awarded the Mackey Award for the nations top tight end and the Disney Spirit Award for the most inspirational figure in college football and now plays in the NFL. I am now honored to serve on the board of the organization that gave my family our lives back. Thank you WCF!!!

This organization, As well as the people that form it, really care about women and children.They want to make a positive impacts on as many peoples lives as they can. In our economy, domestic violence is overlooked but it is REAL and it is VERY serious. They see this need as the huge need that it is,and want to help. I was amazed when I went to the first fundraiser after meeting and discussing certain issues with them I would recommend this group to anyone
