Nonprofit Spotlight: Hopeful Horizons
Hopeful Horizons is a children’s advocacy, domestic violence and rape crisis center that works to create safer communities by changing the culture of violence and offering a path to healing. The organization provides safety, hope and healing to survivors through evidence-based practices, outreach, prevention and education. Hopeful Horizons serves Beaufort, Allendale, Colleton, Hampton and Jasper counties.
In January 2017, Hope Haven and CODA (Citizens Opposed to Domestic Abuse) merged to create Hopeful Horizons. As one organization, it continues to enhance and expand services, to grow and to learn and to re-affirm its commitment to its core values – compassion, collaboration and a commitment to excellence. With a combined history of almost 70 years between the two founding organizations, Hopeful Horizons is able to empower victims, educate the public and provide a one-stop shop for victims of violence and abuse. The center believes in the importance of advocating for victims and educating the public on the connection between child abuse, domestic violence and sexual assault. Hopeful Horizons believes in putting victims’ needs first and sending a powerful message that we all have a part to play in ending the cycle of violence and abuse.
