Oncandle and flower October 21, 2015, Women’s Protective Services will observe their Annual Candlelight Vigil at the Lubbock County Courthouse.  The vigil is held every year in October as part of Domestic Violence Awareness Month.  Each year WPS hosts this event to honor victims of domestic violence that have been killed by their intimate partner and encourage and support those victims and their loved ones who survived.  There will be candles lit this year, as well as a release of balloons, to remember the victims who lost their lives to Domestic Violence in Texas in 2014.  Guests at the vigil will enjoy music by Justin Garcia, and will listen to guest speakers Brandi McConnel and Jackie Neal.  These two survivors will tell about their experiences in an abusive relationship, how they escaped and of their accomplishments now.  The vigil will also display the ‘Clothesline Project’.

The Clothesline Project is a series of t-shirts designed by victims of Domestic Violence and their families and originated in 1990 through the Cape Cod Women’s Agenda.  They decided to use a clothesline after discussing how many women in close-knit neighborhoods have traditionally exchanged information over backyard fences while hanging laundry out to dry.

A Letter from the Executive Director

Jason HenryJason Henry states-“It’s an honor to join Women’s Protective Services of Lubbock-the purpose of this organization is needed more now than ever.”  Henry goes on to say, “Domestic Violence in our community is real.  WPS is at the forefront of efforts to stop the cycle of family violence in West Texas, and I am excited by the important work ahead.  It is not every day that individuals are able to say that they provide life saving services to their community.”

“Women’s Protective Services has been truly blessed this year through some amazing financial gifts, charitable support, donors and sponsorships.  The generosities of these donors have provided WPS with huge opportunities to increase our current level of services to the 3,400 + women and children we serve each year.

For over 37 years WPS has grown in strength and services to become one of the largest residential shelters in the state.  Furthermore, the shelter facility provides non-residential outreach services to a wide range of domestic violence victims in our 12 county service area which includes; Bailey, Cochran, Crosby, Dickens, Garza, Hockley, King, Lamb, Lubbock, Lynn, Terry and Yoakum counties.

“On behalf of the women and children that we serve, the Board of Directors, Staff and Volunteers, I would like to thank each of you for your generosity and kindness in providing so many necessary gifts and financial assistance.  This not only helps adults to escape abuse and violence, but also provides children a safe haven and a healthy environment to heal and flourish.”
