The Start of Bee TrU
The founder of Bee TrU is a survivor of intimate partner violence (IPV) who utilize her family as her support system that did not judge but assisted her during an unhealthy period of her life. It was when Sherry was informed of a friend’s death related to domestic violence on October 31, 2013 that she decided to BREAK THE SILENCE associated with DOMESTIC VIOLENCE and started using her story to educate others. The plan that Bee TrU devised consisted of focusing on both Men and Women who are victims, to educate communities (using an educational model/visual tools), and rehabbing homes in Tennessee to create transitional housing for victims. The programs are supported by various supporters who make generous donations.
