Be Someone's Lighthouse: Send a Message of Support

Be Someones Lighthouse Banner

My name is Haydee.

Years ago, I made the difficult decision to take my daughter and leave an abusive relationship with only
a small suitcase and a few family photos in hand. 

As I began to rebuild my life, what helped me move forward were the words of support that came from
others, including my daughter:

“You do not have to do this alone.”
“You are safe now.” 
“Mom, you are my hero. We will make it.”

Those words of support became my lighthouse: I was not alone and neither was my daughter. That
feeling fueled my courage and strengthened my determination to start anew.

TODAY, I’M ASKING YOU TO DONATE 
AND SEND A MESSAGE OF SUPPORT TO A WOMAN
WHO HAS EXPERIENCED VIOLENCE.

Haydee
