On behalf of Jan and Ron Kimble, and the Board for Directors at the Jamie Kimble Foundation for Courage (JKFFC), we thank you for attending our
2021 Women for Courage that was held virtually on Thursday, October 14, 2021.


Women for Courage is our flagship educational and fundraising event to stop intimate partner violence before it begins. It is an opportunity for both men and women to hear about our mission and the initiatives of the Jamie Kimble Foundation for Courage, as well as to learn the characteristics and warning signs of intimate partner violence.  Victims work, live and play in our community and may not realize they are living in a dangerous situation, if they choose to stay in a toxic relationship. The Jamie Kimble Foundation is dedicated to supporting the development of healthy, respectful, and nonviolent relationships while bringing awareness to unhealthy, abusive, or violent relationships.  Our goal is to partner with communities, universities, teen groups and organizations and faith-based groups interested in raising awareness about teen dating violence and promoting safe, healthy relationships.  Click here to learn more about our Courage Clubs.

Ashley Bendiksen- 2021 WFC keynote speaker 

In the U.S., 1 in 3 teens will experience some form of intimate partner violence. Ashley Bendiksen was one of those teens. Her abusive relationships became damaging and also dangerous, turning her life upside down. Remarkably, Ashley rose to achieve tremendous success. Today, she's a nationally acclaimed expert in dating violence prevention, speaking to teens across the country year round. She holds insights into the change that occurs when communities break the silence and commit to raising awareness.
In this inspiring keynote presentation, attendees will get to hear Ashley's powerful story and understand the impact of abuse. They will also understand the difference that can be made when family, friends and advocates understand the warning signs and take the time to provide the support necessary to prevent further tragedy.
