Taylor shares why she's so passionate about the 1736 Family Crisis Center.

This was a very special episode for me as I had the opportunity to share my passion for working with victims of domestic violence. It was also a difficult episode as I shared a very personal story. I have been a volunteer for the 1736 Family Crisis Center for six years now and the experience is one I cherish deeply. 1736 provides life saving support to families 24 hours a day through five shelters, three community service centers and five crisis hotlines. The work they do rebuilds lives, fosters hope, and creates a future for families who have endured painful life circumstances.

Witnessing domestic violence in my home at a very young age left a lasting impression on me. We were blessed with a strong family support system and I was quickly removed from the situation. Many of the families at 1736 and other shelters are not so fortunate, and suffer far too long not knowing where to turn for help. My hope is that sharing my experience and talking more about the long term effects of domestic violence will help put an end to the cycle of abuse and give those in need a glimmer of light at the end of the tunnel.

If you or someone you know is in need of help, please call 310-370-5902 or 213-745-6434 or 562-388-7652 (collect calls accepted) or visit 1736fcc.org for more information.

I found the day of self-defense training I did with Adrienne to be incredibly empowering. I have a long way to go before I can kick butt like she can but, I’m going to keep practicing.

Thanks A!

Until next week, take care. xo T Please follow me on Twitter @TaylorATweets
