Founder, Tyria Thomas was given this vision from God immediately following her own story of survival. On September 16, 2014 she was involved in a domestic dispute with her then boyfriend which lead to her being shot 6 times with a 40 caliber weapon and then him, fatally, turning the gun on himself. The process of this traumatic experience has allowed Ms. Thomas to be a knowledgeable recipient of Gods miracle working power and has been the driving force behind her diligence to passionately bring awareness to domestic violence in our communities and across the globe.
Tyria Thomas states: "Because I am alive to tell my story, I vow to help as many people as I can. Many are ashamed, damaged & have suffered much. I want to help these individuals to become whole again after the brokenness. Preventing others from making the same mistakes that I've made. In my particular case there were two victims, both he and I, therefore my focus is on the issue and not the gender. Hurting people can't help but to hurt people. One must unlearn the dysfunctional patterns of the past and learn to love better. I believe in self-worth and real love which is taught through a genuine relationship with thy self and God. Domestic Violence knows no boundaries and is no respect of persons so together we ALL can play a part in ending this disease of TOXIC love."
1 Peter 5:10 After you’ve suffered a while, I will establish thee.
