Foundation4 Domestic Violence Prevention is working toward a world with significantly fewer incidents of domestic violence. Our 2019 signature event, Clothed in Confidence: Hats & Heels, is a fashion show with a twist. While showcasing our models and honoring those who are domestic violence survivors, we will also be educating our guests about various aspects of domestic violence.
The program will provide a glimpse into the lives of a select group of models - women and men who found themselves in an abusive relationship. We will answer questions like, “why do they stay” and “who is at risk” in addition to how abusers break down their victim’s confidence to gain or maintain power and control. You will also learn how to spot the signs of abuse and how to help someone in an abusive relationship.
Funds raised at Clothed In Confidence will support the development of a comprehensive program including easy-to-implement curriculum to teach students self-worth, identifying values, and skills to set boundaries with others. Studies show that these types of programs can reduce incidents of verbal and physical aggression by 40% - 50%. (Reasoner,1992, Borba, 1999)
