The mission of the Beginning Over Foundation is to provide individuals and families affected by domestic violence and domestic homicide with the vital financial support and peer based programs designed to educate, heal, empower, inspire and assist in rebuilding their lives in the face of tragedy. We work to connect individuals and families affected by domestic violence and homicide in order to promote healing, cultivate personal growth, and help raise awareness of domestic violence. Our mission is to positively impact as many lives touched by domestic violence and homicide as possible.

“When this tragedy happened to my family, no specific services existed. I had to find my own ways to heal because my suffering was so deep and intense that existing services lacked the experience or capacity to deliver what was needed. I’ve spent thousand of hours figuring out ways to help children and families “survive.” I didn’t want them to reach out for help only to find that therapy and counselling will leave them in a haze and thinking that their own grief and the lack of services would make them feel hopeless. Overall, I didn’t want the survivors isolated by their own trauma.”

 

-Heidi Markow, Founder and CEO of the Beginning Over Foundation
