About Us

Blessing Our Women is a NonProfit Organization bringing awareness to Domestic Violence. We strongly believe that every voice matters and every story counts...help us break the silence against domestic violence!  B.O.W. for a new beginning. We admire the survivors, honor those taken, and never give up hope on ending domestic violence! Everyday women are faced with the challenge of deciding whether to stay in an abusive relationship or leave. Often times they stay and it results in death. It's time to bring an end to this and save our sister's life. 

Our Vision & Mission

Our vision is to bring awareness to others in a way to understand and provide support to the victim. Our mission is to empower, promote and support all women and their families. 

Our Goal

Our goal is to encourage and empower survivors through our annual luncheon and other activities. We will work with other organizations to help provide hope and healing and rebuild families.

Safety Planning

ety plan, you ask? 

A safety plan is a personalized, practical plan that can help you avoid dangerous situations and know the best way to react when you’re in danger. If you’re experiencing abuse or are in an unhealthy relationship, creating a safety plan can be very helpful. Whether you decide to end the relationship or stay, it’s a good idea to empower yourself with the knowledge of how to act in different scenarios. It's important to have a plan in place. Depending on your situation, you might be planning to leave an abusive relationship, in the process of leaving or maybe you’ve already left. Or, maybe your friend or family member is experiencing abuse, and you are looking for ways to support them. Safety plans come in all shapes and sizes; they should be unique to the survivor’s needs in the moment.  And remember, you can always contact us if you need help creating your own safety plan.  Call 1-866-269-4624.


Blessing Our Women recognizes and honors our angels who have lost their lives to domestic violence. Our heart goes to every family devastated by this tragedy. As part of our mission we remember our memorial scholarship fund. Our scholarship is uniquely named after my own special angel.
