Highlight #3–Builders of Hope

 

Builders of Hope is a new giving program to recognize compassionate and dedicated donors who donate monthly . . .

. . . because they want to see individuals transformed from being victims of abuse and violence to survivors who lead violence-free lives;

. . . because they want to see children given new skills for conflict resolution that do not include violence;

. . . because they believe in providing HOPE to break the cycle of abuse now and for future generations, one person and one family at a time.

“[Because of the Northwest Arkansas Women’s Shelter], I can keep my baby alive and prevent my other children from seeing violence. I can breathe and not walk on eggshells. I have a chance to turn things around. I can break a cycle by recognizing red flags and by having a safety plan. For some of us, it [the Northwest Arkansas Women’s Shelter] is our only hope.”

Every dollar received each month is an investment toward giving HOPE to shelter residents and to outreach clients who desire peaceful homes and healthy relationships.

When 250 donors contribute $50 each month,
