About Genesis Women’s Shelter:
"We are looking to create a societal shift on how people think about domestic violence. In order for that to happen we need everyone to share the same message that there is help and there is hope.
It will take all facets of society going in the same direction to invoke a real change. For every woman in an abusive situation, there is help and there is hope. Any woman, any age, any race, any religion, anywhere can be affected. But it does not define who they are.
If we truly want to end domestic violence, we need to see these women for who they are - our mothers, daughters, sisters, friends and colleagues. Domestic violence can affect anyone, regardless of age, ethnicity or socioeconomic class. We will not stop until all women and children are safe in their own homes.
Genesis Women’s Shelter was founded with a goal to not just help women, but to completely eradicate domestic violence. We have formulated our services to address the issue holistically and give each woman the same message: there is help and there is hope."
