LexiconWB is a non profit corporation created by a survivor of domestic violence. She hopes that her story of breaking the circle of violence will help others in the same situation become empowered, and learn that no one has the right to hurt you - physically, sexually, emotionally.

We are remodeling a church, to create a safe house, where these women may stay and remain until they are capable to fend for themselves. Here we will give them the tools needed for them to succeed, by providing them with, work skills, education, and emotional support, while helping them get housing.

Each room will have a theme, the Hope room, I'm Strong room, Get away room, the Faith Room and so on. Their will also be a family gathering room where we all meet and discuss our day and our accomplishments for that day. The center is focused around small daily positive accomplishment, as this will help the victims regain self-esteem, value and a purpose.

The victims will be referred to us by the justice center. The women will be in a safe environment where they will receive emotional support. Our goal is to help them become independent, and break away from the circle of violence. The women will be able to remain with their children in their own private room. This will create a less stressful situation for the parents and their children.

Also we will provide child care while the mothers are taking  classes, that will help them acquire skills, such a writing a resume, setting up a job interview, managing simple home budgets, attending court dates, and so on. The shelter will provide food and clothing for the victims. Since women aren't the only victims of battery, we have a room that has been created for a male victim if needed. We don't believe in gender discrimination. Therefore, we are here to help battered victims.  Battery comes in all shapes and forms, and does not discriminate between genders.
