The Purpose and Mission of Finding Faith Within
The purpose for the founder Candi Eduardo starting this non-profit organization was to provide advice, and a support group for women and teenagers ages 17 and up that have been or are in a abusive relationship as well as dealing with children that are involved and how that has an effect on their emotional behavior.
As a a victim of abuse. Candi didn’t know what resources were available or if she was able to talk to someone that has been through what she have gone through. It was important for Candi to tell the world her story and let women know that if she can overcome what she has gone thru then anybody can. It was important for Candi to see if she could help these
women find the resources they may need to get away
from abuse and deal with the pain so they can go on to
live wonderful lives. Candi knows that everyone has a story. Let Candi and Finding FaithWithin help you find your voice.
The mission of the Finding Faith Within Yourself is to
educate women and teenagers on things that they can do to get out of abusive relationships as well as first signs of abuse physically, mentally, and verbally. Also, provide services that they need to start over and want a better life for themselves and their children.
