is a community of women who, through shared testimonies, fellowship, and mentoring help women develop coping skills, strip away shame, feel safe, and blossom. L.O.V.E. is a support group for abused women and has an environment of confidentiality and anonymity. These are essential to the success of the group.
Diane Scott is the founder of L.O.V.E. The program is available to all women who have suffered all types of abuse: emotional, physical, financial, sexual, regardless of where they are on their journey.
As a “survivor” of abuse, Scott knows, first hand, the lasting affects abuse can have on a woman’s life. She understands that regardless of the type of abuse, “survivors” deal with similar issues: shame, guilt, and trust, just to name a few. It is not enough to “survive”. Working with a group of ladies, who are also Overcomers, Scott created this support group to help women, not just “survive”, but thrive and become the women God designed them to be.
Regardless of when the abuse happened, women carry the affects of abuse for their entire lives. L.O.V.E. is for all women who suffered abuse, not just those currently in crisis. The program is for women to have a place to go and share, grow, and help others thrive.
