On May 29, 2015, our mother was killed in a domestic abuse situation. She was helping a friend retrieve belongings when the friend's estranged husband killed them both before killing himself. What began as a family tragedy quickly became a passion for helping others and a way to heal. The Hope Shoppe was formed in an effort to assist victims who are trying to leave their abusers and start a better life for themselves.

 


“ When victims learn that the help they’ve received has come from somebody in the community...there’s something powerful about that”
— Anne Acker, director, Safe Home
