Beacon of Hope hosting breakfast

Terry Moore, executive director of Beacon of Hope Center for Women, says $200 could save someone’s life.

That’s the cost of a table at the first Beacon of Hope Lead the Way Breakfast, set for 7 to 9 a.m. June 21 at the Country Club of Indianapolis. The breakfast  is designed as a business to business networking event.

Beacon of Hope is an agency on the westside of the city looking to aid victims of domestic violence and raise awareness of the problem.

Seats to the breakfast are $25 each, and a table seats eight. That full table purchased, she says, could have a direct impact on women who are in abusive relationships.

“The $200 would cover one of our client’s counseling sessions for four weeks,” she said. “Counseling is imperative for any woman or child suffering from domestic violence because that violence can rob a woman of her self-worth, dignity, and self-respect.

“I can share about one client of ours that came to our center to get counseling that was being abused by her father, and within four weeks she was beginning to make that turn from victim mentality to survivorship,” Moore said. “We know for a fact that BOH saved her life.”

BOH has licensed counselors available to speak with the abused, and Moore said the purpose of the breakfast event is to help get the 501©3 non-profit’s mission out to that demographic in the community.

“My conclusion (to hold the breakfast) came to life because we really need businesses, churches, and other organizations to help lead the way in the community to help these women, children, and family pets get out of harm’s way,” she explained. “We chose a breakfast event because we felt like we could get to know the business owners and the community, not only that BOH serves, but all other surrounding areas.” She said anyone is welcome to attend, but the tenor of the event is geared toward businesses getting to know other companies as well as learning about BOH.
