The Battered Women’s Foundation . . . The BWF is a visionary agency founded in 1995 by Vern and Brenda Jackson to aggressively fight the growing problem of domestic violence. Once a battered woman herself, Brenda Jackson recognized that it takes more than temporary shelter to begin a new life of independence and self-sufficiency. It requires a complete lifestyle change – a change founded in renewed hope for the future. The BWF, incorporated as a 501(c)(3), is faith based on this understanding and designed to complement the work of other organizations by providing long-term assistance to women attempting to break the cycle of abuse and hopelessness. In addition to the expected services such as counseling, emergency food and clothing and temporary shelter, the BWF offers a vital and unique two-year program designed to heal all areas of a client’s life. Clients receive assistance with permanent housing, education, child-care, transportation, job search skills, food and clothing, medical care and, most importantly, rebuilding their self-esteem and giving them hope. With a very small budget and a goal of helping over 2000 moms and kids a year, the Foundation depends heavily on volunteers, corporate and private donations, and a network of services working together. The Results . . . With the assistance of the Battered Women’s Foundation, many clients are able to become self-sufficient and effectively break the cycle of abuse for themselves, their children and future generations of their family. The Battered Women’s Foundation provides victims of domestic violence with assistance in the areas critical to successfully becoming independent and breaking the cycle of abuse FREE SERVICES AT BWF Food, clothing, furniture, computer classes, counseling,
