Our projects are a part of our core values.
The core mission of the foundation may be transportation, but the foundation doesn’t overlook the importance of a person’s emotional and mental wellbeing. With that thought in mind we have taken on a second aspect; that of promoting nurturing and empowering shelter environments.
The Milligan Foundation has started a campaign called Milligan Foundation Home, or “M Home”. We are enlisting the help of award winning interior design professionals and world renowned furniture manufacturers to help create the most supportive environments possible. We actively seek design industry professionals who have been gifted with the ability to create tranquil interiors for spas, soothing interiors for hotels, and the most welcoming home interiors imaginable. The environments they create will remove outside and environmental stressors so that a person is able to focus on inner healing and growth.
Our commitment to creating peaceful, nurturing, and empowering environments is a belief we wish to share and spread to all shelters. The foundation will use the connections we make with interior designers, home furnishing manufacturers, contractors, and developers, to improve the shelters so many call home. Through our “Room Angel” program, shelters can be matched with available designers, and designers can utilize the product that has already given to us by showrooms and manufacturers.
Some of the incredible home furnishing items we receive will find new homes via charity auction, and in our own showroom in the future.
The 2nd Mile is a support group for domestic violence survivors created by The Milligan Foundation. The group will be led by various professionals in the fields of PTSD, Psychology, Life Coaches, Motivational Speakers, Personal Finance, and many more all to help you create the life you deserve. This is a place where you'll have a safe outlet to share concerns and everyday living situations that face domestic violence survivors. You will make friends and gain the support you need to go that second mile.
Each monthly meeting will feature a new speaker/moderator, but in no way will be static to one specific topic. If you would like to become part of our monthly group, and receive notifications on upcoming meetings, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
INTERNATIONAL DOMESTIC VIOLENCE COMMUNITY
The International Domestic Violence Community is an online global community of domestic violence service providers. The purpose of the community is to exponentially expand the effectiveness of all domestic violence resources worldwide. The community enables domestic violence services from multiple countries to share education, resources, best practices, client services, funding opportunities, and emergency service alerts. It will provide support for new organizations forming in impoverished countries and help collaborative efforts for well-established existing NGOs.
If you are a service provider or work in an area where you come in contact with people who have been victimized by domestic violence and would like to become part of the community, you can fill out the registration form HERE.
