Great news! ENLC won the Share Your Story, Ohio video contest at the HealthPath Foundation luncheon on November 18 in Columbus that came with a $1500 prize. Elizabeth’s New Life Center received a story telling grant last year that required us to tell stories of some of the clients we have worked with who are or were victims of intimate partner violence (IPV) or domestic violence (DV). The star of our video is a woman named Magalia who gave us permission to tell her story in the hopes that she would save others the same fate. I am including the video so you can hear and watch Magalia tell her painful yet very promising story and the role that ENLC played in helping her escape the violent and dangerous situation she and her daughter were in. She also tells the role we played in helping her reclaim her role as an “empowered woman” who is now strong enough and brave enough to raise her daughter in a much healthier and safer situation. Magalia also highlights all the help she received from our Earn While You Learn program to provide for her material and educational needs.
Please join us in celebrating the fact that our work was recognized and appreciated so much to be voted the number 1 video entry in the Share Your Story, Ohio contest that had 31 other entries. Just one more way ENLC is serving the people of God and building strong families throughout Southwest Ohio with excellence.
