The S.T.A.B.L.E Program

The S.T.A.B.L.E Program

Women Called Moses has noted a dramatic rise in the calls received from working professional women who has a desire to leave their abusive home environment. 


However, these women are unable to just simply walk away. In response to
the need for assistance for this growing demographic WCM has developed a new program, The S.T.A.B.L.E. Program
whose goal is to help these women make a safe transition away from their abuser while maintaining a certain quality of
life for themselves and their children.


The common belief that domestic violence occurs primarily in lower-income families is inaccurate. Professional women
with good jobs also find themselves in abusive relationships. In many cases, these women find dealing with the problem
even more difficult than poor women do because the violence is more unexpected and they are often less willing to
utilize or qualify for the social services that could help them escape from their abuser. Professional women usually have
a great deal to lose by severing ties with their abusers, often including a home in a middle-class neighborhood, their
social standing in the community, their financial security and a superior education for their children. Because so much is
riding on the perpetuation of their marriage, they may lack supporters even among their own families. We see daily that
professional women are trapped by a fear of exposure amongst their families and peers and that is the abuser’s secret
emotional blackmail.


The WCM S.T.A.B.L.E. Program supports business and professional women as described above by securing safe housing
for themselves and their children without having to be placed in a shelter-like environment. We operate a safe house in
addition to coordinating with individual apartment managers and real estate services to secure housing at a reduced
rate and supplement the costs for rent and utilities based on individual client income assessments for a period of up to
six months.



Our goal is to assist 20 business and professional women over the course of two years (2019-21) with the help of this
grant. These women will be required to currently be employed in a professional field such as teaching, business services,
medical, insurance, ministry, retail, etc., and have a minimum income of $35,000 per year. We anticipate the average
supplemental assistance provided by this grant will be $1,500 – 2,000 per month for each client for 3-6 months. Success
will be determined by effectively helping these women transition to a secure apartment rental, to help them establish
rental histories, utility services, and most importantly assist them in locating counseling services to help move them
along the road of independence.


We currently have over 25 women from Dallas on our waiting list who need assistance and qualify under the above
referenced guidelines. With a $100,000 funding seed we will be able to immediately help an average of 10 women for 6
months while we continue to seek additional funding revenue to further assist additional women.
Women Called Moses need to raise the $100,000 to operate the S.T.A.B.L.E Program and we are seeking your help to do
so. As a non-profit all support WCM receives is tax deductible.
