5th Annual Heels to Heal “Fashion Show to Remember” is being held at the Vinoy Renaissance Royal Palm Ballroom in beautiful downtown St Petersburg. Proceeds from the event will go toward the Heels to Heal Therapy program.
Heels to Heal Inc. is a 501(c) 3 non-profit organization, founded in 2009, dedicated to helping survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault receive resources necessary for healing. Each survivor receives 12 free counseling sessions where they learn how to break the cycle of abuse, reduce PTSD symptoms, and restore a sense of hope that will lead them to a safer, healthier environment for both themselves and their children.
The goal for this year is to provide at least 150 hours of counseling services per month and expand the program to include adolescent counseling services. With over 6500 reported cases of domestic violence and sexual assault each year in St Petersburg, we can make a difference to help these survivors receive the healing and care they deserve.
