Helping Women Take Back Their Lives.  #KeepMovingForward

Mission statement:
Keep Moving 4ward Foundation (KM4F) is a non-profit organization that advocates for the social welfare of women and children by providing an environment that promotes safety and independence.

Purpose:
KM4F envisions a shelter system that provides wide-ranging services to victims of domestic violence and sexual assault. The shelter will be open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Our goal is to empower and advocate for woman who feel they are trapped in an abusive relationship because they cannot move forward on their own. The KM4F program will provide:
•Safe shelter and recreational center
•Transportation
•Provision of food and clothing
•Advocacy support
•Individual treatment and family group counseling
•Employment assistance (resume, computer literacy, interview skills and attire)

Additionally, there will be a strong focus on building a positive attitude, communication skills, dependability, honesty, and courtesy. Employment skills and computer literacy are also an important focus in the program.

Many blame the abused survivors for staying, but we must start supporting them to enable them to leave. By understanding the many barriers that stand in the way of a woman leaving an abusive relationship – be it psychological, emotional, financial or physical threats –  we can begin to support and empower women to #KeepMovingForward and make the best decision for them while holding abusers solely accountable for their behavior. Here are just a few of the reasons that prevent a woman leaving:

Danger and fear

Isolation

Shame, embarrassment or denial

Trauma and low confidence

Practical reasons-no financial independence, threat of taking children away

The support isn’t there when they need it
