Help Melanie End Domestic Violence

Monday, May 13, 2019

Domestic Violence is a pattern of coercive behaviors which may include, but are not limited to, physical assaults, verbal abuse, sexual abuse, harassment, or threat of harm used by one individual to control or exert power over another individual in the context of a family, household or intimate relationship.

Did you know that 1 in 4 women will be victims of Domestic Abuse at some point in their lives? One of those four just so happened to be my cousin Decora Alexander, who was stabbed to death by an ex-boyfriend. I, myself, remember being packed into the car as a young girl about 10 or 11 as my mom escaped to my grandmother's home from my abusive stepfather. Though, we made it out alive, unfortunately, my cousin didn't escape in time.

The crisis of abuse against women is so alarming. I am still plagued by things I saw as a young girl and I knew as a child that I would one day work to expose domestic violence, empower women who've been shamed and broken by it, and educate churches who have congregants affected by it.

I recently created my very first GoFundMe page to raise funds so that I can begin licensure to become a LPC (Licensed Professional Counselor) and Trauma Therapist. I want to put an END TO DOMESTIC VIOLENCE and help women get their lives back! Will you help me?

I've already founded this organization, however, my dreams are to have my very own Counseling Center through Survival Sisters' Peaceful Oasis to help survivors of Domestic Violence find hope, support, and healing from their traumatic experiences.

If you can find it in your heart to support my dream and my mission, I will love you forever! Even if you can't at this moment, please pass this on to someone who can and also support via prayers, calls, emails, etc. I am embarking on a brave new journey that will leave me with some exhausted nights. However, if it gets me one step closer to helping even one woman escape abuse, then I've done my due diligence.

I love you and I THANK YOU in advance for sponsoring, donating, and supporting me as I raise funds for tuition. Please read my GoFundMe Story! I know you'll be blessed.

In Peace,
