Email sent to our CEO...
Today I spoke with a very kind human being in your call center. Katie was so compassionate. I was not really able to use your services as we identified I live in another state. Yet God must have guided me to you just so I could have some much needed comfort from the kindness of a stranger.
I suffer from a lot of trauma. And I try to advocate for people who have mental illnesses as a result. So often we become repeated victims of Abuse because of our handicaps and past. And I need a lot of help and resources.
Your site is so hopeful. And courageous. How it is to find the strength to find faith and hope when you are so broken down is incredibly hard. What you are doing to empower victims of abuse is beautiful. I just wanted to write you and thank you. And may God bless you who suffer yet still find it in your hearts to help others. You do provide hope. You do!!!!
Thank you so very much.

Individual empowerment is a process of development for each individual person. It involves developing skills and abilities and a more positive definition of ones self.
Achieving individual empowerment is realized by having a better feeling about yourself, a sense of more self-respect and self-esteem.
If you want a simple mantra - Individual Empowerment means 'becoming powerful'.
To become personally empowered...We must be able to answer...what are my personal values, what are my skills and goals... then do I want, really want, personal empowerment and am I motivated and prepared to adjust my behavior in order to achieve my goals.
