The Alma G. Davis Foundation was founded in 2005 and is headquartered in Atlanta, GA. Founded by Alma G. Davis as a result of her own personal trials and triumphs with domestic violence, the foundation strives to ensure that victims (especially women and children) break the vicious cycle of abuse that is constantly on the rise.
“Having received my own 1st set of black eyes at the tender age of 14, I felt it was only right to reach back and grab those that are pushing their way forward”, says Davis. Now a successful and respected business woman and community leader, Davis has made it her passion and privilege to uplift women and teens that are survivors.
Due to the alarming statistics of “1 in 4 women and 1 in 7 men in the U.S. has experienced domestic violence in their lifetime, and “1.5 million high school students nationwide experience physical abuse from a dating partner in a single year”, we utilize this platform to embrace, educate, encourage and celebrate those that are having the courage to say “no more” and are trying to rebuild their lives. This is an important initiative to our community, as we must all do our part in wrapping our arms around these women and young girls and continue to encourage them to move forward with positive, healthy lifestyles. Please join us in making our efforts a success,” says Alma G. Davis.
