Healing & Hope Luncheon Featuring Elizabeth Smart, Sugar Land Marriott Town Square, Thursday, 17. October 2019

The Annual Healing & Hope Luncheon is a very special event that focuses on our mission of assisting survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault & their children, and addresses the evergrowing need that continues to pervade our community. Every year, Fort Bend Women’s Center serves more than 1,000 survivors who have been victimized by an abuser. Besides physical violence, abusers may use emotional and verbal abuse, isolation, threats to maintain power and control over the victim, and many times sexual abuse. Whether these survivors need immediate safety, counseling or beyond, we are here to help them to achieve safety and self sufficiency. And we can’t do it without you!
This year, the 4th Annual Luncheon features child survivor, advocate and author Elizabeth Smart. From being victimized by an abusive child abductor at the age of 14 to now becoming an advocate for missing children everywhere, Smart has defied all of the odds.
Please join us on October 17th to hear the personal story of how she healed from the most frightening ordeal of her life and to learn how you can help other survivors find that healing too. “Nobody can blame a victim for their actions when they are being threatened, bullied, forced or coerced...” (Elizabeth Smart Foundation) Together, we can end victim blaming, save lives and build a better future for our community. You are where Healing & Hope begin.
