15~The Beginning Over Foundation

The subject of Domestic Violence is an all too familiar situation among far too many women, including myself. I can recall the news coverage of Robin, and her sisters determination for justice, as well as the desire to help others. This is a local organization for me and I feel I owe it to them to further their message.

Who We Are
An organization founded in memory of my sister Robin D. Shaffer. On June 15, 2005, Robin lost her life at the hands of her abusive husband. On that day I made her a promise and today my conviction is stronger than ever. Robin's memory will live on through the great work of the Beginning Over Foundation.

What we do
Offer education, support, advocacy, housing, and hope to those touched by domestic abuse.

Why we are here
To end domestic abuse, restore hope and rebuild and save lives.
