My experience with Beacon of Hope Center for Women, Inc. has been very enriching for me as a volunteer. Although have not been a victim of domestic violence in the past, a number of my friends have experienced domestic violence. I have had it in my heart to help serve in whatever capacity I could. When the Executive Director, Terry Moore, who is one of my best friends shared her dream and vision with me to open a domestic violence crisis center and shelter, I said to her that I will support you in whatever capacity and am very happy to be making a difference with fundraising events to help with saving lives of domestic violence victims. I have had an opportunity to meet a few current victims and survivors, through my service with Beacon of Hope. I believe that God has opened the door for Beacon of Hope Center for Women, Inc. to not just be like other crisis centers/shelters, but to take it a step further to provide for victims families and in future provide shelter for pets of victims as well. The community on the West Side of Indianapolis are very supportive of having Beacon of Hope Center for Women, Inc. locate there, because there is a GREAT need for there to be a shelter on this side of Indianapolis. Domestic violence seems to be more prevalent on this side of town. It is my hope and prayer that Beacon of Hope will receive more and more monetary support so that they can open up their shelter soon, but also support otherwise through donations, volunteering, etc.
