Our annual Women for Courage luncheon is an opportunity to hear about the mission and initiatives of the Jamie Kimble Foundation for Courage, as well to learn the characteristics and warning signs of domestic violence/intimate partner violence. Many don't realize that one in four women will be a victim of domestic violence in their lifetime.  Domestic violence knows no boundaries. Victims work, live and play in our community and may not realize they are in living in a dangerous situation if they choose to stay in the toxic relationship. The Jamie Kimble Foundation for Courage was named so because of the courage it took for Jamie to leave, which is indicative of the tremendous courage it takes for anyone to leave an abusive relationship. But Jamie's situation also demonstrates that one must have a plan to keep yourself safe even after exiting an abusive relationship. 

It is our goal to raise funds and friends with this event to support prevention, education, awareness and research initiatives.  We pledge to help youth and young adults understand how to build healthy relationships and recognize warning signs of abuse in their own emerging relationships, and those of their friends and family. Our goal is to stop domestic violence before it begins. We hope you will join us.
