April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month

Dear Beautiful People,

Right now more than ever we need your support. We are staying focused to make sure we are providing resources and giving information that is helpful to college students to learn about Domestic Violence,  Sexual Assault, Mental Health, and Sexual Education. Visions of Women has grown into developing a women support group that is not only offering  opportunities for young people to learn and stay educated but also, offering a network, and  trainings locally and nationally. Our group has focused on prevention efforts for 7 years now for men and women to learn and be apart of Visions of Women on and off college campus. We make a difference in the community together. Regardless of who you are Visions of Women stands to share prevention resources with all people. 

This month a college in South Carolina had students marching because of a sexual assault allegation between a student and a faculty member. This was and still is a student concern about their safety.

We urge you to support our efforts to bring campus and community safety. Join our fundraiser below or donate on our donation page. THANK YOU!

Highlights from V.O.W. Girls League Summer 2o2o.

V.O.W. Girls League has ended for the Summer 2020. On Thursday, August 13th we had a closing session with participants who completed the program.  We had 13 girls and 7 completed the program. It takes patience, and commitment from the parent and child to complete V.O.W. Girls League. We would like to thank all of our parents again, for being there helping their child login and participate. We know that everyone’s schedule can be busy sometimes. Thanks  for investing in your child. Together as a community we are investing in our children to be educated women who will choose healthy relationships in their lifestyles.

All girls were given a gift bag with their certificate of completion, a personalized cup with their name, a gift card, and some other awesome goodies to wish them an awesome school year. We will check in with our beautiful girls, being mentors to encourage them and see how things are going with school.  We will also give them a chance to join other activities such as all girl conferences that are online. As we prepare for our next session next year keep us lifted and in your thoughts. Support us please so we can continue to have more V.O.W. Girls League Sessions. Donate Today
