Garry Thomas, Vice President and Treasurer, Walgreen’s Manager
I believed in Victoria’s vision and mission that she shared with me several years ago. I am proud to be a Founding Board Member of Awaken, Inc. which fights against domestic violence and sexual abuse. I am proud to be part of an organization not only for women and children, but for men as well.
I am apart of Awaken, Inc. because I was physically and emotionally abused in one of my marriages. It is quite uncommon to hear about abuse to men versus abuse by men, but this practice occurs more often then what is reported. Victoria’s story is one of hope and victory not just for women and children, but for men who are victims and want their voices to be heard out of the cries of shame.
