In 2015 our Executive Director and Founder, Rosalind Rayford, calculated that our youth, teens, and young adults are becoming increasingly involved in abusive relationships. These abusive relationships seem to have captured our daily living without knowing that Domestic Violence is a crime. The earlier education is shared with our children and youth, the better chances they have of recognizing and ending an abusive relationships and the cycle of Domestic Violence. The signs and the cycle of abuse are not obvious. A change is to be introduced and it is our responsibility as a community to educate, raise awareness, and prevent the cycle of Domestic Violence. We Quote, "The children are our future" Well, let's band together and show them that we believe they are our future and provide education for the fight against Domestic Violence.
LipGloss for Love's mission is to Educate, Raise Awareness, and Prevent Domestic Violence, while empowering individuals and families to address it within their lives, community, and society.
Our vision is to ensure that every participant regardless of age, sex, religion, ethnic background, social and financial status is able to participate, understand the importance of how to live in a safe environment and know that abuse is not acceptable and Love Shouldn't Hurt. LipGloss for Love is here to provide services to individuals and families in need of alternative options.
Our goal is to provide domestic violence education (not eliminated) to the youth and families of our community without discrimination and put an end to the cycle of domestic violence. Understanding that life is precious and we have the choice to live and give life.
