The Bill was passed July 31, 2009 and named "Candice Law."As an organization that is determined to make a change with domestic violence, so we agreed that if we would just have a conversation with each other, we can help each other to work toward healing.

Her Mission: We believe that all people have the right to live without violence or the fear of violence. To preserve that right, her mission is to provide immediate/direct safety and shelter for individuals whose lives have been affected by domestic violence and sexual assault; to as well empower victims to become survivors, while regaining control of their lives, and realizing their individual potential which violence and abuse has threatened to destroy.
