A New Year - A New PURPOSE!
What do we have within ourselves to live a life filled with PURPOSE? Where does our PURPOSE come from, and how does it affect the way we think, communicate and interact with others?
“People have to identify with a purpose, to a feeling of belonging to,
and contributing to something worthwhile.”
- Mary Crowley
Leaders of Restore Hope have the same life experiences you do, but we have a passion and PURPOSE we want to offer and share with others to help make our world a safer place for children.
Our PURPOSE centers on what we have been called to do:
Our PURPOSE is – “not one more child” be harmed by child sexual abuse, but are loved, nurtured and protected.
Our PURPOSE is - to give all parents, educators and those caring for our children and youth tools to prevent abuse, and to learn the appropriate responses to concerns or discovery of abuse.
Our PURPOSE is - to give children tools to learn the tactics of abusers, be taught to respect their own boundaries, and the courage to report ongoing abuse or anything that makes them feel uncomfortable.
Our PURPOSE is - to value all survivors and their stories, and to offer paths to healing that will allow them to grow from victim to survivor, from survivor to thriver and finally to warriors.
Our PURPOSE is - to offer hope to our community and nation, share the facts of this growing epidemic, and offer ways to become dedicated advocates for those who are most vulnerable.
Our PURPOSE is - to have friends, family, co-workers and community leaders join us with their support of time, their voices, and financial gifts toward protecting children and supporting survivors.
As we start a New Year we look to each of you for HOPE and the fulfillment of our PURPOSE! We thank you for joining us in whatever way you feel moved to do.
