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! Every day someone is 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 loved one's life.
Our vision is to bring awareness to others in a way to understand and provide support to the victim. We will help survivors of domestic violence exercise their legal rights and explore options to help them make their batterer accountable for their actions. We will offer a no judgement zone to help them be free of shame. We will provide compassion and connections for each survivor through our support programs and networking with fellow organizations
Our mission is to empower, promote and support all survivors and their families. To support the victim, survivors, & their families who have been affected by domestic violence in any form. To educate the community on healthy relationships, to work with community partners to provide education, awareness, and services for the healing process of the abused one have encountered. To offer guidance to survivors to help build healthy relationships and help reduce the shame and guilt so they can build their interpersonal skills.
Our goal is to encourage and empower survivors by any means necessary including but not limited to our annual luncheons and other activities. We will work with other organizations to help provide hope and healing and rebuild families. We are committed to ending domestic violence by changing the current beliefs and institutions which encourage violence.
Survivors of domestic abuse need specialized mentoring services that are victim-centered. Taking that into consideration, we specialize in knowing and taking the special precautions to help each individual. Research has shown that this has a positive impact on survivors.
With our job readiness program, we help individuals prepare to get, keep and excel in their new job. Basic employability skills include effective communication, problem solving, resume building, and interviewing. Job readiness training programs also help participants develop good work habits that facilitate their ongoing success. Workshops typically include lectures, discussions and role-playing exercises. Job readiness programs may also provide transportation and childcare.
We also have a closet to help individuals dress for success if needed to go to their interview.
We just would like you to know that you are not alone. Starting January 2020, we will be having Survivor Group Sessions on the third Wednesday of each month. The location may change but here is a list of the dates:

Safety 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.
