THIS IS A SAFE PLACE
I cannot rise unless I extend my hand to my sister so that we can rise together. Though, we may be different. We are the same. What makes us the same? We are sisters! Let us walk this journey together and learn from each other. Let us rise together and leave no sister behind as we share our stories and resources.
"I am a woman wonderfully molded and shaped and destined for greatness. Life lessons have taught me. Lessons learned have sought me. The love of life has bought me. I'm sold out to love. Love of self. Love of of my sisters. I am wonderfully made. We are wonderfully made. Together, we can make a difference. Together, we can inspire our daughters and sons. Together, we shall stand with 100% confidence in all that we do. Why, you might ask? Because we are women wonderfully molded and shaped and destined for greatness."

Hello! My name is Claudia, I was born in Orange Grove California And moved to the Evergreen State 16 years ago when I got married was married 12 year, had 3 boys and unfortunately my marriage failed. Then sometime along the line I met my now husband Jim (a blessing from God) he compliments me in every way and supports my dreams and not only does he support me but I couldn’t do this with out his help. I always knew I wanted to have my own business that involved being creative but didn’t know what it was until after Jim and I got married, when I created my own backdrop and my perfect wedding setting.

My home life growing up in South Seattle was amazing! I had a close-knit family who loved to celebrate holidays, birthdays, and lots of parties until my early teen years when my parents fell ill. For some years after that, I used alcohol as a coping mechanism for the trauma I felt from that. At first socially then regularly, then both. I was blessed to find success in my career path throughout my life and worked in HR for over 25 years. As I rose through the ranks, I no longer enjoyed the work I was doing but remained attracted to the prominence and financial benefits however, as my bank account and passport stamps increased, my alcohol consumption did too.

I am the Founder and Executive Director of a non-profit that provides academic and mentoring support for inner city youth and I am the owner of a "Natural Body & Home Care Company" In 1994, I gave birth to a beautiful baby boy. Children are truly a blessing even in spite of the situations and environment they were born into. I was a teenager at the time of his birth, a whole 15 ½ years old. At that point, Im sure everyone believed that I would be a statistic, that I would end up desolate just like the rest of the teenage mothers in my community-I even believed it! I had totally abandoned my dreams of starting a community center and my outlook was dreary. The one thing that I clinged onto was my EDUCATION.
Breaking The Silence
EVERY 73 SECONDS,
AN AMERICAN IS SEXUALLY ASSAULTED.
Sexual violence affects hundreds of thousands of Americans each year. While we’re making progress — the number of assaults has fallen by more than half since 1993 — even today, only 5 out of every 1,000 rapists will end up in prison.
How To Spot Child Abuse
The Reality Of Child Abuse
Identifying the problem is key. No forms of abuse are acceptable. Abuse is a behavior used by a person to hurt another person mentally, physically, sexually or verbally.
As you identify the problem, you are placing your feet on the right path. You will begin down a path that won't be easy but it's a must in order to heal yourself. We support you!
BreakING the silence
Once you identify the problem, you must edify by "Breaking The Silence". Exposing the truth. The truth can be exposed in many ways such as confiding in a trusted friend, seeking counseling, calling one of the above hotlines or calling 911.
Exposing the truth will free you. Keeping the truth within will hold you hostage. It's important to break the silence. Breaking the silence is step #2 in the healing process. You are on the right track!
HOPE DWELLS WITHIN
Acknowledge the feelings you may have within. Hope is the feeling of expectation and desire for a certain thing to happen. Hope dwells in all of us. Abuse can sometimes skew our view and desire to overcome.
Never lose hope. It's important to visualize your outcome and walk forward with confidence. The road may not easy but journey will become one of greatness. You are here for a purpose!
Although, the road ahead appears dim or dark. You must applaud yourself for identifying the abuse. To identify, sheds light in the midst of a dark place. You may cry. You may kick. You may scream.
But, no matter what...it is important for you to keep on walking. Place your hand over your heart and feel the beat of your heart. That means that you have purpose and you are still breathing and still standing.
