Hollys House is a calm and loving environment where individuals go after horrific situations and/or crimes. Instead of sitting in a cold interrogation room, a victim has soothing surroundings and nurturing counselors that ask questions about what has happened.

I am not a victim of any sort of violence. I just wanted to say after watching Holly's story on 48 Hours what an inspirational person she is. I am 41 years and lost my fiance who I was with for over 11 years, my Mom and my friends as well as relatives. I do because of my loses know how hard life can be, but to see a person go through such a horrific event as Holly did and to dedicate herself to help others instead of wallowing in misery, is by all means a hero in my eyes. Holly is someone who was the complete opposite of her attacker, she has a strong value for human life. I admire her strength and moral that she demonstrated by testifying against her attacker/friend's killer. It is awful to see that people can ruthlessly kill, unimaginable. On the other hand someone like Holly, with her value for life, wanting to help others, live for the victims of her attacker, represents the ideal human, a mentor, a hero.

Holly's House has helped so many people, it is a fantastic resource in our community. I've talked to so many who have been helped directly or indirectly by Holly's House. Students at University of Southern Indiana also benefit enormously from the connections they have and work they have been able to do there.

Holly's House provides a safe and non-threatening environment for victims of sexual abuse. They play a vital role in our community and fill a much needed niche. When I toured the facilities, I was most impressed with the staff and the premises and the extra effort and thought they have put into everything to make the experiences there the best they can be under very difficult circumstances. I applaud the board, the employees, and the volunteers for being a beacon of light in the Evansville area.

Holly knows first-hand the pain of violent and sexual crimes. Her story is so powerful, and despite the suffering in her life, she has gone on to help others heal from their pain. This is a worthy charity!
