New Center Set to Provide Shelter for Victims of Domestic Violence and Covid-induced Homelessness
Janice's Women's Center, a conceptual center for women in the throes of homelessness and domestic violence, is set to become a reality as its visionary founders, Shante Saulsberry & Sheri Saulsberry, are on the verge of creating an ingenious and affordable housing scheme for these victimized women.
Domestic violence and homelessness is a cancerous vice in our present-day society. Every year, millions of women all over the world are victims of domestic violence. According to available statistics, on average, 24 people per minute are victims of rape, physical violence, or stalking by an intimate partner in the United States — more than 12 million women over the course of a year.
Rev. Donna Mulvey once said that "When it comes to abuse, you believe there's no way out. There is always help. There is always a way out." Janice's Women's Center is the way out. Shante Saulsberry & Sheri Saulsberry have dedicated a lot of their time and efforts to do something extraordinary in Phoenix, AZ. These inspired and inventive women are reinventing the wheel as it pertains to shelter living. They are raising money to build a "Go Green" affordable housing center for these women with everyday recycled products.
Focused and determined, this dynamic duo will stop at nothing to help other women who are stuck in the quagmire of abuse and homelessness. They have been working closely with the City of Phoenix, The Council Members in Phoenix, and other leaders within the city who are very inspired by these ladies’ ambition and vision to see something great occur within the city of Phoenix.
Shante & Sheri have gotten their community involved "Ahwatukee" of Phoenix District 6, who have shown an outpour of support. Shante has been very busy on Social Media reaching out to celebrities, popular DJs with an abundance of followers, and even a few Phoenix Influencers. Shante has said, "She doesn't have time to wait on Government funding; there's a need that should be rectified, especially with Covid causing so many women and children to be homeless."
Shante is determined and is going to continue to raise funds and awareness by all means necessary. She's very thankful for all the support she has gotten this far and hopes to raise the $2.5 Million needed very soon to see that Janice's Women's Center doors get opened this year of 2021.
"I've raised $500 so far, and my goal is not solely to depend on Government funding. I need to raise $2.5 Million by July 2021. My development team at Bryant Commercial Real Estate has informed me the build-out for my "Go Green" Center design will only take three months to achieve. At the moment, the exact location cannot be disclosed to protect the privacy of the women experiencing domestic violence and homelessness" she said.
