I recently attended the November 2019 conference and I must say it was amazing! There were awesome speakers, open conversation and engagement with the audience.. music to go with the story line.. it was empowering! Every year that I attend the conference, I walk away with new information, new friends, and new perspectives that I had not thought about. I am not a sexual abuse victim but I've benefitted greatly from the stories, support, and love from Dr. Chambers.

More people need to be made aware of her work and her worth! Her organization is one of a kind and it's needs to be properly recognized. She is a true asset to the community.

Thank you for all your work!

DC Empowering Children is a great organization that I have known about for several years now. the organization dedicates itself to families, to self empowerment to, fighting against sexual abuse and more. If you do not know about this organization it is a good organization to get to know. They do a lot of community activities in activism in the greater Boston area. A lot of community activities and meetings that are set up by the organization are free to the public. This organization also works with, and is expanding on it's network with other community organizations in Massachusetts.

I have been coming to this conference for years. I began as a sociology student attending with my mother. I come to these conferences to hear the many stories of triumph over tragedy. It amazes me how terrible events that could have broken these survivors empowered them to keep going.

First let me start with stating that the Founder, Debbie Chambers is speaking from experience and is invested in reaching those who can benefit from her service. She is transparent in her communication and outreaches to all audiences with an emphasis on children. She opens up her presentations and forums to everyone. Her care and support for those experiencing these behaviors from other is remarkable. The program educates and provides resources to others in need so that they can overcome their fears. The time that she dedicates to speaking in her forums whether it be individually or in a group is excessive but necessary. Everyone does not recover at the same pace nor do they require the same attention, but the one thing they do all need is love and support. She recognizes that they are not alone in what they are experiencing or have experienced and makes herself readily available to them. These victims need to know there are several ways of overcoming and seeking help, counseling and support as a victim. I am here to support DC Empowering Children, Inc. because it reaches silent victims who may be scared to talk about or report these incidents. This nonprofit empowers those impacted or loved ones of victims to speak out and make the difference in their loved ones life or friends life. Thanks

I have known Debbi Chambers' work in a variety of contexts: over 20 years ago she was a student of mine and a math tutor in a program I supervised at the University of Massachusetts. She also was the administrator for a 4-day conference I and colleagues organized on Challenging Eurocentrism in Mathematics Education. Her work was outstanding.

Ever since I have followed her activities with the Empowering Children conferences, seen her give a talk at a few of them, and, over the years, discussed her ideas underlying her work in this field. I continue to be impressed with Debbie's thoughtful, resourceful ideas and the nonprofit she has created.

I would recommend DC Empowering Children, Inc. to any one I care for. Dr. Chambers is an unique woman. Dr. Chambers does not treat you like a case file, but as a person. Someone can always say they care, but SHOWING that you actually do, speaks volumes. Dr. Chambers does just that, shows that SHE cares.
I applaud Dr. Chambers for being UNSELFISH and for wanting to put others needs even before hers at times. She is the true definition of a Phenomenal Woman.

Debbie Chambers is an awesome, kind hearted woman, that gives her time to help children daily. I first met Debbie at the Oliver Wendell Holmes Elementary School, in 1999 when my daughter started going there. Instantly she was liked. The way she connected with the children, made them trust and respect her. Her program, DC Empowering Inc. is amazing. What she does for these children will help them get far in life. They will have the want and desire to succeed thanks to Debbie and DC Empowering Inc. Thank you for what you have done with my children and myself. I hope this program is still around when my grandchildren start school.

Dr. Deborah Chambers: Is a very DEVOTED woman when it come's to this organization. She's gone above and beyond to teaching, encouraging and helping people of the community who's life has been change because of sexual abuse. I take my hate off to her because she has gone through this on a personal experience and is a SURVIOR! I pray that any and all can contribute to this cause to help any and all children, adults or anyone who has been a victim of this abuse.

Dr. Deborah Chambers, whom I have known for many years as a friend and colleague is a supportive and knowledgeable individual. The DCEMPOWERING Children organization is her passion. In terms of competence, Dr. Chambers provides insightful planning in preparation to support the children that she guides. Her strong academic training and life work have prepared her for a thoughtful, well-informed practice.
Exceptional teacher-administrators and life guides require the flexibility to meet both the individual needs of their clients and the developing needs of their larger community.
Dr. Chambers demonstrates great flexibility in her practice and I know her to be a person of honesty and integrity. She is a responsible, dedicated professional, who brings positive energy to her organization.

Sincerely,
Dr. S. Yamamoto

I have volunteered for this agency for about a year now and worked with Dr. Chambers side by side. From observing and assisting her I can say, she is truly the embodiment of healing through education. I am honored to work with such an agency and looking forward to the continued work in helping children surviving sexual abuse.

I have attended several of DC Empowering Children Conferences. For me they were very healing and allowed me let go of the grip that kept me frozen in time of the molestation as a child which gave my abuser power over me as an adult, as a mother, as a wife and as a woman. Through a lot work, I am an empowered woman. DC Empowering Children also empowers mothers, fathers, families too. We are not alone and don't "knowingly" let the past trauma direct your present life. Take your power back and help others in the process. That is what Dr. Chambers does.

I recently wrote a Thank You letter to Dr. Chambers of DC Empowering Children & I'd like to share some of it with you.
"DC Empowering Children has over the past few years, done for me what years (over 30 years) of on and off therapy failed to do. DC Empowering Children has provided me with a safe forum to feel empowered, and has taught me to embrace my strength and capitalize on it throughout various aspects of my life. Dr. Chambers, you have helped me find my voice! You have help me to overcome self abusive tendencies, to acknowledge my history, and to grow from it."
"I felt safe enough to share my story of childhood sexual abuse and rape among many other forms of abuse I have experienced throughout my life."
This organization is needed throughout this country! The lives that would be impacted and even saved are countless. DC Empowering Children educates communities through free conferences. Support of DC Empowering Children is vital!

I am a Connecticut resident. I met the organization's founder at a function in the Boston area nearly 10 years ago. After a brief discussion, I became fascinated with the work that she'd been doing in her community. Moreover, i was impressed by her passion. So much so, that I drove up a few months later to attend her annual conference. This was to be the first of many yearly visits. I would often donate my musical talents to the conferences via song. I saw firsthand the results of her support to the 'survivors" and their families. The conferences were informative and engaging. Each year the attendance impressively increased. This is evidence that this organization is making a difference in the lives of those in need. Kudos, Dr. Chambers! Best of Blessings, DC Empowering Children!

I had a terrible childhood. My biological mother was addicted to crack cocaine and engaged in prostitution during a time when I was in her custody. I suffered abuse on the behalf of my own family members because she was unable to protect me. DC Empowering children gave me a safe place to vent when others shunned me in the worst way.

I have been to a few events sponsored by DC Empowering Children. They helped me to complete my childhood trauma of molestation. At each event more people are helped and healed. It is helping many people find their voice and to stop being silent and to speak up and out to help their children and grandchildren. The mission is strong and Dr. Chambers is a caring and compassionate spokesperson and fighter to combat and end sexual abuse of children. Shattering the silence and making your voice be heard is so important. Let stop it now so we don't have more generations of wounded adults dealing with the transgressions that happened to them when they were innocent and powerless. This is an uphill battle and it takes a dedicated leader to champion such a cause. Dr. Chambers is that leader. Supporting this nonprofit will help to heal many generations past, present and generations to come. We can stop Sexual abuse of children if we all speaker up and out loud..., CDW , Boston, MA

The incredibly powerful work of Dr. Debbie Chambers, in helping empower people to not only overcome their pain, but become stronger, must be recognized as ground breaking.
DCEMPOWERINGCHILDREN is the only way many people can truly heal, rather than taking 20 years in private therapy, to achieve either similar results, or , in my families case, move beyond that.
Her conferences are so moving, empathetic, but doesn't allow people to fall backwards into a victim mentality ever again. Debbie Chambers deserves to be recognized for her tireless work by creating DCEMPOWERINGCHILDREN , a non-profit organization. It is essentially a life saving safety net for people who have suffered through so much.
Dr. Chambers has a true vision, and needs support. As she helps others, I hope to help her by telling the world, DCEMPOWERINGCHILDREN should be awarded as a number one priority to the survivors of sexual abuse.
