Our Women for Courage Luncheon is an opportunity for both men and women to hear about the mission and initiatives of the Jamie Kimble Foundation for Courage, as well to learn the characteristics and warning signs of intimate partner violence.
Many don't realize that one in four women will be a victim of intimate partner violence in their lifetime. 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 a toxic relationship. It is our goal to raise funds, and friends, through this event to support our 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.
