Share your story

Angeleyes Foundation is looking for victims and survivors who will share their stories, to help bring awareness to Domestic & Sexual Abuse.
You can submit your stories anonymously or using your real name. Our goal is to empower other victims and survivors to speak out and break the silence.
Silence is the power abusers use to maintain control over their victims as well as their family and friends.
In years to come it will be easier to count those not effected by Domestic or Sexual Abuse, in recent research numbers are as high as three out of five females in certain groups.
Domestic Abuse occurs in higher numbers after graduating school and or becoming involved in a serious relationship.
Sexual assault or abuse takes place from middle school throughout college, date rape is rape and shouldn’t be dismissed or minimized by faculty or parents, these type of assaults have long term effects that effect every relationship in the future.
Why are you the survivors and victims allowing this to continue?
Why are you not supporting Angeleyes Foundation in our fight to expose the flawed system and bring about needed changes?
Angeleyes Foundation needs victims and survivors to unite in our movement to eradicate Domestic & Sexual Abuse.
Your donations will be used to help save lives and keep changing tomorrows.

A Sad Night

Our angel we helped escape last week, is now in her 3rd state trying to stay ahead of her abuser/ husband.
How sad it is she is on the run and hiding from him by leaving her home and friends behind.
Doesn’t seen fair in order to find safety and peace of mind – one should loose everything and have minimal pleasures left.
Sad but true he has filed for divorce already trying to strip her of any means to live independently. Abusers often take everything away in the attempt to force their victims back into submission.

Early warning signs of dating violence

What Are the Early Warning Signs of Teen Dating
Violence?
Researchers who study teen dating violence have identified several early
warnings signs that a dating relationship might be likely to turn violent.
These warning signs do not mean a relationship will definitely turn violent.
However, if you notice several of them in your relationship or partner, you
may need to re-evaluate your dating relationship. These warning signs
include:
• Excessive jealousy
• Always comparing him or herself to others looking for validation of
your love for him or her.
• Constant checking in with you or making you check in with him or her
• Attempts to isolate you from friends and family
• Insulting or putting down people that you care about
• Is too serious about the relationship too quickly
• Has had a lot of bad prior relationships – and blames all the problems
on the previous partners
• Is very controlling. This may include giving you orders, telling you
what to wear, and trying to make all the decisions for you
• Blames you when he or she treats you badly by telling you all the ways
you provoked him or her
• Does not take responsibility for own actions
• Has an explosive temper (“blows up” a lot)
• Pressures you into sexual activity with which you are not comfortable.
• Has a history of fighting, hurting animals, or brags about mistreating
other people?
• Believes strongly in stereotypical gender roles for males and females
• You worry about how your partner will react to the things you say, or
you are afraid of provoking your partner
• Owns or uses weapons
• Refuses to let you to end the relationship
• What can you do if you notice these signs in your relationship?
1. Trust your intuition! If you believe there may be a problem in the
relationship, you are probably right
2. Do not ignore the warning signs. (You could be saving a life)
3. Research has found that those who have a tendency to engage in
relationship violence escalate their abuse over time. (It gets worse over
time, not better).
4. Spend time with people you care about other than your partner.
5. Stay in touch with your friends.
6. Keep up with activities that you enjoy and that make you feel good
about yourself.
7. You might consider looking into what help or resources might be
available in your school or area.
8. You might also want to consider calling a domestic violence hotline or
shelter for more information before you experience a crisis

Leave your home and your city

Ladies is it fair that you have to leave your home and your city to escape your abuser or stocker?
Why should you not only have to leave your home and possibly your children and everything you’ve worked so hard for just to escape the domestic or sexual abuse and the perpetrator?
TEXAS wants stood for real man and cowboys who protected their families and protected women and children . I am sorry but I guess TEXAS has fallen because here in San Antonio Texas domestic and sexual abuse along with human trafficking is the highest it’s ever been and one of the highest in the country.
I am not sure of the exact failure in our system but I’m pretty sure it has a lot to do with the catch and release policy.
Our district attorneys office has a task force headed up by and ADA, I was under the impression that position was to help protect victims. We have failed to obtain multiple protection orders or restraining orders due to lack of evidence,I am not sure what kind of evidence she needs to elpimplement a protective order or restraining order. As we have showin in the past multiple calls to the police department for the same thing Domestic Abuse, I ask myself self what kind of evidence are they looking for??? As some or most of our victims that have requested these protective items have had scars on their faces black eyes busted lips shaking like a leaf in the wind living in fear every day refusing to leave their own homes or their temporary hiding spot.
I am asking every victim and survivor to stand with me and fight for change!

San Antonio – Where did all the good men go?

San Antonio men seem to be hell-bent on destroying its female population.
I have never seen so much physical, mental, verbal and sexual abuse anywhere I have traveled in the country.
As a kid growing up where are used to watch western movies, I never remember seeing Cowboys or Texans allow the beating of a woman.
In San Antonio domestic and sexual abuse has no boundaries it doesn’t know the limit of your income, ethnicity, Job description, educational levels nor does it care what neighborhood you live in. It is prevalent in all sections of town and I do not understand why it’s such a secret? Secrecy gives abusers power it allows them to continue what they’re doing getting away with a crime every day against humanity and morality.When did it become OK to miss treat, bead on or sexually abused women and young teen females? As fathers and his husband’s we should hold ourselves and others accountable for their actions. If we see someone doing something wrong we should speak out here fo when did it become OK to miss treat, bead on or sexually abused women and young teen females? As fathers and his husband we should hold ourselves and others accountable for their actions. Even if we are too afraid to do something ourselves we should speak out and ask for help or reported to protect Mothers, daughters and grandchildren
Where did all the good men go?

Family

When you are growing up as a child you are led to believe your family will protect you.
The sad truth for many young girls and children – your family is the first to hurt them.
1st destroying their self worth and any moral value they had.
2nd stealing any hope for a normal life.
3rd setting them up for re-victimization from other scumbags and molesters / rapist.
4th they are taught not to tell or speak out.
5th do not ask for help – who will believe you – no one so they suffer in silence waiting for the next abuser to violate them for their own pleasure.

If you know a victim you have a moral obligation to report or tell.
