Navy Fed Real Estate Risk Management Team
Project Coordinator, Brandon Torres, and his team spent the day working on a cleaning and organization project at FavorHouse's Kids Center. Everyone on this team had amazing energy and hearts of gold. In fact, after volunteering they decided to keep giving back to FavorHouse by doing a diaper drive! Thank you so much for your kindness and generosity!

Surviving to Thriving
Last Thursday, FavorHouse hosted its inaugural meeting of the new Surviving to Thriving women's support group. This group is open to women survivors of intimate partner violence. Here, you have a safe space to talk about your experience with domestic violence and will be offered non-judgmental support from others who've gone through the same pain. Together we will thrive!

Easter was a joyful time at FavorHouse thanks to many generous community members. The Navy Federal Contact Center Fraud & Digital Team made and delivered beautiful Easter Baskets for the children we serve. The Elks Lodge donated candy, Susan Craig with Coldwell Banker Realty donated plastic Easter eggs, and 4EVR Dez along with Hillcrest Baptist Church donated a whole Easter Party kit! Easter dinner was a delicious feast thanks to Sandy Domschke, Christie Alsop, Susan Bell, Carolyn Williams, Pam Rodgerson, Kim Tilka, Susan Craig, Robin Wopat, Jennifer Troyer, Lauren Harrold, Ashley Bodmer, Karina Samudio, and Geraldine Vaurigaud.
Volunteer Marvin Wopat made sure that plastic eggs were stuffed and Volunteer Lisa Allen made sure dinner was served hot! Everyone at the shelter was overcome with the show of love and support. Thank you to all involved for spreading so much joy.

It can take some time for victims of abuse to be ready to leave.
Leaving an abusive relationship has many obstacles - Safety, Financial Issues, Children, Pets, Isolation, Lack of Support... the list goes on. The Ask an Advocate video series allows people to ask questions and get answers in a passive and anonymous way. No judgement and No pressure. The goal of this service is to provide easy access to assistance through multiple avenues. Being in an abusive relationship is difficult enough. Getting help shouldn't be.

Dating violence is more common than you may think, especially among teens and young adults: 1 in 3 U.S. teens will experience physical, sexual, or emotional abuse from someone they’re in a relationship with before they become adults. And nearly half (43%) of U.S. college women report experiencing violent or abusive dating behaviors.
Join FavorHouse in our mission to prevent abuse by empowering teens to set healthy boundaries and learn the signs of control and manipulation.
