WOWAPALOOZA COMMITTEE

 

Women’s Own Worth wants to recognize the outstanding commitment it takes from all of our dedicated friends that serve on our WOWapalooza committee. This group of outstanding women contribute countless hours to ensure our event is everything we dream of and more. We realize that their time is their most valuable asset. It’s an honor that they choose to contribute to our organization. Please take a moment to read a little about each of them. They truly deserve recognition for the community service that they are doing. These lovely ladies are a huge part of us being able to serve those in our state impacted by violence. Our board and the Arkansans we serve cannot thank them enough.

She recently got married in February of 2016, shortly after her husband left for a 15 month deployment. His devotion to our country is what made her want to be more active in her own community.

Delta Bost

My name is Delta Bost and I have served on the committee of Women's Own Worth for two years now. When I first heard about the organization it struck a chord with me because my mother was a victim of domestic abuse for a few years.  Domestic abuse affects everyone in the home.  I remember thinking we should both just run away but I didn't realize that it wasn't that easy.  Thankfully my mother was able to get away from the relationship that caused so much abuse.  But long after the physical scars heal; the mental scars remain.  I realize the importance of helping women and children who are or have been in these situations.  

Sometimes it feels like it is easier to just stay and take the abuse but that is what is so wonderful about organizations like WOW, they give hope to those who are hopeless.

 I am honored to be a part of such an incredible organization and I love hearing stories of healing.  It is a long process but it is so meaningful to those that are ready to move forward with their lives.

Jennifer Lancaster

Last year, W.O.W. honored Jennifer as the Woman of the Year (Volunteer) for all her probono work with victims of violence in partnership with W.O.W. When asked why she has chosen to help and partner with W.O.W. she says " W.O.W. truly makes a difference in our community. It provides the victims of domestic violence with the tools they need to get their life back and transition from a devastated victim to a proud survivor.

I am excited to support an organization that makes such a significant contribution to the needs of those hurting among us. I have already witnessed a domino effect from the individuals who benefit from W.O.W.'s services. Many of W.O.W's clients are inspired to overcome adversity and help others just as they were helped by the wonderful supporters of W.O.W. "
