16 March, Western Metropolitan A.M.E Zion Women's Conference.
The organization will have the opportunity to spread awareness to women belonging to a faith organization. Helping to understand how to identify signs of sexual and domestic violence and human trafficking and how to support survivors.
1 April, Arizona State University (ASU) National Leadership Alliance Student Association (NLASA), Impact Expo. This event will further education students on the importance of nonprofit organizations to better understand the critical role they play in our communities and state.
20 April. City of Goodyear Hops and Hops family event. The organization was invited to participate in this event and spread awareness. This is a family-friendly and fun event, therefore the organization will incorporate a hands-on activity for participants (youth).
As the first facility to open will be the "House of Hope" the organization's tabling will consist of activities and materials for youth to build their "house of hope." Age appropriate material will be provided for young adults and parents, guardians, or caregivers.
We are in need of supplies for this event, with the main supply (houses to construct) will be purchased through Oriental Trading Company. The organization is requesting support from the community for monetary and in-kind donations for this event.
18 May. National Women's Health Week Event. Collaborating with Go with the Flow as well as New Life Center.
DeeCilla Comfort Center wants to focus on reaching young adults, in the Goodyear community, and teaching steps they can take for better health. The planned event would not focus solely on the physical health of the young woman, but various aspects that affect their overall health, to include healthy relationships.
The objective is to provide tools to encourage self-pride and love, which has an impact on their perspective of healthy relationships, ultimately becoming a tool to fight against future issues of domestic violence.
Physical Health – Go With The Flow (Healthy Menstruation)
Relationships – TBD, Relationships, and Safety
Domestic Violence Awareness - New life Center (emergency shelter for domestic violence)
What: Packing party and donation drive for New Life Center coupled with presentations and activities by organizations.
- Go with the Flow is known for their “packing parties.” Organizations sponsor the packing parties to assist Go with the Flow spread awareness on Menstrual Health. Promoting healthy ideals toward menstrual health for women. Furthermore, they strive to provide resources for places such as schools and shelters where these resources are seriously lacking. The packing party, for this event, would be a tool to educate young women, while also encouraging them to support the local Domestic Violence Shelter. The parties are educational, interactive, and fun.
- TBD. Focuses on healthy teen dating while spreading awareness to prevent violence in dating/relationships. While they focus on teens overall, the request for this event will be to focus on the young women.
- New Life Center. Emergency Domestic Violence Shelter, located in SW Valley. Bringing awareness about their facility and their residents will highlight the challenges faces the community and further alert participants to potential threats and outcomes of domestic violence. Additional donations for items will go to the center based on their “needs” list.

DeeCilla Comfort Center
Personally understanding the needs and trials of victims and survivors, Shawanda established DeeCilla Comfort Center to help bring Hope to those hurt by sexual assault, domestic violence, and human trafficking. A Veteran and Fuller Theological Seminary graduate, she is also an author and speaker.
I believe the DeeCilla Comfort Center is going to be a blessing in the community.
Walk of Faith AZ supports this cause and is happy to serve.
I am in full support of this organization. There is such a need for this program for many women looking for a place of resource where they can feel safe and comfortable in their search. Not feel like a statistic.
