Power Couple Donates Home to National Domestic Violence Organization

DALLAS, TX – 10-16-2017 (Press Release Jet) — Former Major League baseball player, LaTroy Hawkins and his wife, Anita Hawkins recently donated a home to be used as a domestic violence shelter to Women Called Moses, a non-profit organization created to be an “underground railroad” for victims of domestic violence. The house can accommodate up to twelve families and will include a relaxation room where the residents can journal, meditate and reflect, dedicated to Find One Reason to Smile, the non-profit organization founded by Anita Hawkins.

Anita Hawkins, a survivor of domestic violence herself, has raised nearly $20,000 through Find One Reason to Smile to support Women Called Moses. When Debra Bowles, the founder of Women Called Moses, mentioned the overcrowded shelters throughout the United States and the enormous amount of money she spends to safely place domestic violence victims in hotels monthly, Anita knew right then that she wanted to help in a larger way.

“I have supported Women Called Moses for a number of years because of the life-changing work they’re doing,” said Anita Hawkins. “However, they were limited because they didn’t have a safe place to house them. LaTroy and I decided right away to purchase a house to provide a safe environment for domestic violence victims and their children.”

The Hawkins’ purchased the home in the southern sector of the Dallas Metroplex for around $200,000 and partnered with Antioch Fellowship Church, who is sponsoring the renovations to the house. The house is expected to welcome its first residents before the end of the year. “We are so grateful to LaTroy and Anita Hawkins for donating this home to us,” said Debra Nixon-Bowles, founder and president of Women Called Moses. “The shortage of safe housing causes many women to have to return to their abusers. This house is uber important as it will help us expand our services and save lives by providing a safe haven to many, many families from all across the country.”

Women Called Moses seeks to prevent and end the cycle of violence against women through education and advocacy services provided to individuals, families and community agencies throughout the United States of America. Women Called Moses will host its annual fundraising gala, themed “Heels 2 Heal” on Sunday, October 22 at 7 p.m. at the Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden, 8525 Garland Rd, Dallas, TX 75218 and will feature national recording artist, Michel’le, who recently shared her experiences with domestic violence in the movie, “Surviving Compton.” For more information on Women Called Moses, visit

Brad grew up in a small town in northern Iowa. He studied chemistry in college, graduated, and married his wife one month later. They were then blessed with two baby boys within the first four years of marriage. Having babies gave their family a desire to return to the old paths – to nourish their family with traditional, homegrown foods; rid their home of toxic chemicals and petroleum products; and give their boys a chance to know a simple, sustainable way of life. They are currently building a homestead from scratch on two little acres in central Texas. There’s a lot to be done to become somewhat self-sufficient, but they are debt-free and get to spend their days living this simple, good life together with their five young children.
