Place from Breann, The Hiding 
Place's Program Director

As I sit and write this, I am in awe of the beauty that the Channel Missions team has experienced over 2023 as we have been in the midst of the trenches as The Hiding Place program served survivors of domestic violence. Through hotline calls, emergency pick-ups, hospital visits, and multitudes of one on one and group sessions with survivors, we have seen how healing, hope and peace can be restored. Light can be found in the midst of the darkest of places. Victims can become survivors and survivors can become thrivers.

Throughout 2023, we moved staff on-site, officially opened our physical safe property, opened our 24/7 hotline and started serving on-site and off-site clients. Throughout 2023, we have gained multiple community partners, consisting of law enforcement departments, churches, sister shelters and organizations, associations, and so many more amazing groups of individuals longing to make a difference. We had the opportunity of joining our state’s coalition, the South Carolina Coalition Against Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault. Our staff went through multiple trainings and were all certified as Victim Service Providers. We were able to stand alongside over 100 survivors during the midst of calls and meet-ups. We had multiple opportunities to hear stories, believe stories, and create safe spaces for those stories to be shared without shame.

As the program director and a survivor, I am honored, thankful and humbled to look back on this year and see all of the connections made and all of the opportunities given. I am grateful for our community and the people that have given and have been unexpected blessings to the program and to the survivors we serve. As Joe, Jennifer, and I have served survivors over the past year, we could not have been as effective and available without our village of incredible people.

Hearing a survivor say that they finally feel safe again and have hope that they thought didn’t exist anymore is the most amazing thing to experience. To see the light come back into the eyes of survivors and their children is a miracle in itself. The Hiding Place is their stories, the stories of brave survivors, where restoration occurs. I am simply honored to witness it all and be a part of their community, their family.

Please continue supporting this program. The gifts and support are changing lives. We are eagerly walking into 2024 with so much hope in our hearts.
