When River of life homes was founded years ago, there were other shelters already in existence, but not enough due to the continous rising of domestic violence. Personal experience in domestic violence was also one of the factors that contributed to the foundation of our shelter. There are still a lot of work to do to eliminate the epidemic of domestic violence. River of life homes is proud to be one of the shelters to run this race.
