  • Atlanta, GA (1888PressRelease) April 19, 2016 - The stories - "Life in a shelter for abused women is hard to explain.The broken lives are scattered all around you in the shape of the other women and children that are staying in the same safe house as you are. It is somewhat like being in a college dormitory. Except nobody is laughing or smiling. Everybody is trying to piece back together whatever they can salvage out of the wreckage of the marriages or relationships they are leaving. The children have other children to play with that have gone through similar situations which is somehow comforting to them I believe. To know it is not just them that are going through this hell."- CH WADTAlum 2005

    The headlines- Man shot on I-20 in DeKalb was wanted on domestic violence charges,- AJC; 3 killed in possible domestic violence shooting- WSBTV; Woman shot, killed in possible domestic dispute-WSBTV; Prosecutor shot by husband is ready to return to work - WSBTV

    The news headlines are horrible, one wonders how in a cilvil society women and children are reduced to domestic violence statistics.

    Our ladies are fleeing domestic violence with their children, some flee with bare minimum and when they arrive at the shelters they still need basic necessities. In order to address the basic needs while fleeing domestic violence The #Shoebox project was launched.

    There were enough items donated to fill 50 shoeboxes. These shoe boxes to be distributed on Mother's day includes shampoo, deodorants, bar soaps, hair brushes, wash cloth, toothpastes, sanitary napkins, and several other travel items to aid victims of domestic violence en route to safety.

    "We hope our gesture for the ladies at Women Are Dreamers is mimmicked by other Corporations in Alpharetta and beyond to help victims fo domestic violence and their children. We appreciate all that you all do in the community and our employees are bery glad they could impact the community positively with their contribution".- Cabot Corporation

    "We appreciate all the help and outreach from Cabot Corpoartion, and look forward to continued outreach from this awesome Corpoaration and their employees"- Cindy Williams Director WADT
