BEACON OF HOPE CENTER FOR WOMEN INC
June 3, 2010

I met the director, Terry Moore about a year and a half ago. I was driven by her passion to some day soon open a womens shelter on the westside of Indianapolis. Unfortunately the need is great for this service. The volunteers are friendly and driven by strong values to help others. I want to be part of this project from the "ground up". Helping domestic violence victims start over with emotional, financial and training affects all of us. I have been thrilled to see the westside community come together with donations to help this shelter become a reality soon!

The Great!

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

Through domestic violence calls, I hear that victims are able to escape bad situations. They have the security and support to leave this environment. Pet Fostering Project will be crucial in many cases. I am proud of this organization .

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Expand the pet fostering program and start a building project for the center as soon as possible.
