It is Friendship Home's vision that someday the need for our services will cease to exist, that domestic violence will not be tolerated by anyone in the community and that homes will be places of love, support and safety.
We envision a community that embraces any woman or child who experiences domestic violence. We foresee a society that courageously holds abusers accountable for the crimes they commit against battered women.
We see Friendship Home as a haven of warmth and welcome, new beginnings and empowerment for the women and children who find shelter within our walls. Through unconditional acceptance and respect for the journey a battered woman has taken, Friendship Home supports her providing the assistance she needs to help accomplish her goals.
Our vision is that children, who have seen and experienced far more than their short years should demand, are able to love, laugh and recapture the childhood that was taken from them too early. Our goal for them is to break the cycle of violence and surround them with lessons of hope, understanding and acceptance.
As we reach toward this vision, we aspire to be known throughout the country as a successful model. We hope to propel domestic violence services to new heights of achievement.
