I love the entire staff and am so grateful for all the love, compassion, and support that they have provided for my children and myself.
Hope’s Wings Domestic Violence Program was established in 2006 by a group of committed community members at First Christian Church in Richmond, Kentucky. These core founders identified a need for domestic violence services for women and children in the Madison County Community. The identified need turned into a vision which quickly turned into a program committed to providing emergency housing, outreach, and education to the community.
In March 2006, Hope’s Wings became a non-profit organization of its own, no longer affiliated with the church. During the spring of 2008, construction of an emergency shelter was completed and the shelter opened in 2009. The facility was lovingly named “The Marilyn Isaacs House,” in honor of a local schoolteacher who was a great advocate for women and children and whose life ended too soon.
To date, Marilyn Isaacs House has been a safe haven for more than 800 women and children and the Hope’s Wings program has served and educated thousands more in Madison and surrounding communities.
