Striving to End Domestic Violence
In 2014, the most tragic crisis occurred to our family in Norfolk, VA. We all awakened to a horrific phone call that would play a major impact in our lives today. Our loved one was a victim and survivor of an attempted murder-suicide. As a family, we worked together to help her and her kids rebuild their lives. Her determination, will and the courage to live is what inspired us to form P.E.A.R.L.S of VA Inc. in Chesapeake, VA.
P.E.A.R.L.S of VA Inc. is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization based in Chesapeake, VA, formed by five cousins, including the survivor, whose motivation was to join the movement to end domestic violence.
We are Professional, Educated, And Radiant, Leaders Striving – to work cohesively to end domestic violence while sharing awareness, interventions and offering innovative solutions to survivors in helping them to rebuild their lives.
With the motivation from volunteers and other members of the community, we will support a comprehensive approach to addressing the needs of eliminating violence and advocating and strengthening our community.
P.E.A.R.L.S of VA Inc. also serves as a clearinghouse for information, awareness, outreach and events related to recognizing the prevention of domestic violence.
