Helping Victims of Abuse Feel Beautiful and LovedFriends and Helpers was born in California to help women, parents, families, and children affected by domestic abuse.  Because so many victims flee their abusive situation with only the clothes on their backs, Friends and Helpers organizes basic necessity gift bags as well as special holiday initiatives, including "Adopt a Family."
