A Personal Experience for Mother's Day

FavorHouse shelter and outreach participants were pampered with a fabulous personal shopping experience on May 9th. Personally assisted by a volunteer local Cabi Representative, each participant shopped for, tried on, and took home a HUGE bag of brand new Cabi outfits along with bras, panties, socks, pajamas, and accessories. Brand new designer shoes were generously donated by the Lee Tracy Boutique. The Pensacola Association of Realtors assembled to lovingly collect hundreds of donations and gift 70 bags of self-care items and toiletries. The Beta Club at Washington High School contributed cosmetic bags with skin care products and cosmetics. A big Thank You to Cabi Rep Marlynda Tibbetts-Parulski for making this party happen and to Cabi and Marly's many generous friends for donating over $15,000 in merchandise to this impactful event.


One of the participants texted her FavorHouse advocate and said, "I just wanted to say Thank you for inviting me to the event, I was trying on the clothes again and I just feel really good and confident looking in the mirror. It was a true blessing, I had a lot of fun - a new experience with a personal shopper "

Renew, Energize, Donate

Every second Thursday of May, Keller Williams agents, leadership members, and associates step away from daily business duties, proudly donning their red KW gear, and venturing into the communities they serve with three goals in mind: Renew, Energize, Donate.

On May 11th, more than 40 Keller Williams agents and employees descended on FavorHouse to make a major impact on multiple facilities. Car loads of donations of food, paper products, toiletries and more were fastidiously unloaded and stacked high. The Keller Williams team worked together like a well-oiled machine and beautified the facilities with repairs, pressure washing, yard work, painting, cleaning and replacing two old deteriorating picnic tables with brand new ones! Thank you Bertha Mecias for coordinating this incredible day.


Economic Empowerment

What can be more empowering than learning how to become a master of your own finances? At FavorHouse, we believe that knowledge is power and it is up to you to tap into that power. We are providing financial literacy tools every Wednesday via Zoom for FREE! Register for this week's workshop below and check out the Economic Resources at

Ask an advocate.png

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.

Teen Dating.png

Economic Empowerment

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.

We wouldn't be here without the support of community members like you. Please consider a financial contribution today to support the programs & services FavorHouse provides to help victims of abuse & their children start a new beginning. Thank you!
