BEACON OF HOPE CENTER FOR WOMEN INC
November 26, 2012

When Terry Moore the founder of Beacon of Hope approaced me to help with the first purse auction I wanted to do what I could because I understood how important a shelter or a center that could help women in domestic abuse situation was very needed on the west side. I have seen the determination of the staff and volunteers to make this center a place of haven for women, children and their pets. Whenever I can I want to be able to give my time and dollars to such a hardworking and dedicated group of people who put saving lives of women and children who are in danger.

National FFA Organization
November 5, 2012

National FFA has been one of the top non-profits for me to give my time to. I have learned so much about Agriculture then I ever knew existed. I am so impressed by the young people who are a part of this organization. Their leadership qualities that I have observed are very outstanding. I am more aware of what it takes to feed the world and to have seen not only production farming but the research that goes into trying to feed the world. This organization is a great place for our children to learn and give back.

BEACON OF HOPE CENTER FOR WOMEN INC
May 13, 2010

Beacon of Hope started out as just a prayer for help for women on the west side of Indpls. Through hard work and an enormous amount of support Beacon is now up and running. In working on these 2 fundraisers I saw first hand how willing people are to lend their talents and resources to help women in terrible situations. I talked with women from all walks of life who were survivors of domestic violence. Our fund raisers raised funds that helped us to realize the dream of opening the doors to a resource center on the west side that is helping women, children and teens have safer and better lives.

The Great!

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

My personal involvement has been from a volunteer standpoint but I have been impacted to want to reach out and teach more women about how to avoid being a victim and to share my survivsl story with others.
