My charitable organization is The Harbor House of Orlando. As a survivor of domestic violence, this charity is near and dear to my heart! Their mission is as follows: https://www.harborhousefl.com
We offer not only emergency shelter, court injunctions and our hotline. We’re there before the desperate calls to 911, before abusers lash out in anger. We’re there to prevent – and end – domestic abuse through education. When you partner with us, we reach and teach everyone from children to business leaders to Recognize, Respond and Refer. We also equip law enforcement and all first-responders to effectively and empathetically support survivors. When we all protect ourselves and those around us, we ensure everyone lives safely in our community.Only then can we end the physical and psychological damage to survivors. Only then can we stop the hemorrhaging cost of abuse on law enforcement, justice systems, and businesses.
