Light of Kimberly seeks to improve lives through the provision of compassionate, person-centered services and supports. We strive to empower survivors to live healthy, independent lives free from violence and abuse.
The Light of Kimberly was founded in 2015 by our President and CEO, Kimberly Doubt. As a survivor of domestic abuse, she knows what it’s like to feel unsafe in your own home. A social worker herself, Kimberly discovered in seeking refuge after a violent episode, barriers in accessing shelters and services. She found that with six children fleeing an abusive situation, she was ineligible for traditional emergency shelters due to the number of children she had, their ages, and their genders.
It was at that time the Light of Kimberly was conceptualized. The Light of Kimberly is the organization to provide support and services to victims of any type of dangerous encounter, abuse, or violence and serve as a safe haven regardless of status, gender, and/or age of their dependent(s).
