The Divine Intervention & Prevention also know as (DIP) an outreach ministry for the prevention of domestic violence/abuse & hunger who has helped over 2,500 families in need is hosting the II Annual Tools 4 School Supply & Clothing Giveaway to lend a helping hand to students ages 4-18 that are in need. The event will be held at D.I.P. Outreach 2078 Cassat Ave Jacksonville, FL 32210 on Saturday August 4th @ 10am.
The average cost for back to school supplies and clothing is approximately $1500 according to NBC news, that is just as much as the average mortgage payment for many individuals. According to NCCP.org children make up 34 percent of people in poverty. Most low- income families have to look to the government for assistance, food, clothing, and other necessities such as; hygiene items and school supplies that are needed for children; many times this issue is not addressed on a regular basis or plaintively at all. No child wants to go to school without the proper clothing, shoes, or school supplies. The less fortunate seem to be one of the first to be bullied as a result of this particular lack. The community can support Tools 4 School Jax by donating gently used clothing, shoes, handbags, backpacks, costume jewelry, personal care items, new socks, & underwear, for all ages. For a detailed list visit www.facebook.com/diprestores or call (904) 438-4347.

Empowerment Tuesdays is a weekly inspirational, experiential, educational meeting for the community all ages. It gives attendees an opportunity to worship, fellowship, evaluate themselves based on the message that given. D.I.P. is an educational Outreach ministry for the prevention of domestic violence, our messages for the empowerment series are bible based and point out how everyone is subject to becoming an abuser or being abused. D.I.P. believes that divine healing takes place when we get to the root that is causing the fruit of bad behavior. This is not a traditional meeting about domestic violence and abuse simply because those who are abusing or being abused would not attend unless they were court ordered. However, the power of the Holy Spirit has and will continue to convict attendees to see that there is a problem and Jesus is the only One to solve it.
We simply have to meet people where they are to disciple them through the word of God so they may apply it in every aspect of their life.

The pressures of celebrating the holidays sometimes causes tempers to flare, energy levels to soar and arguments to ensue, culminating in an explosion of domestic violence and abuse. Parties, celebrations and festivities are everywhere and the temptation for excess can be intoxicating. Alcohol, drugs, heightened emotions and the wrong combination of family members, are very often contributing factors in violent holiday explosions. In fact, the holiday season can be an exceptionally tough emotional period for many domestic violence victims, even children. Most loving mothers will do whatever is necessary to create a fun and festive holiday environment for her children, however, for children living in a home where violence occurs, very often, Christmas represents a prolonged period of trepidation due to the anticipation of violence.
D.I.P. Foundation is anon-profit that is working to prevent and end domestic violence by developing innovative programs and events that:
“On Saturday, December 13, & Sunday December 14 from 1 – 4pm, D.I.P. Foundation invites children to have their pictures taken with Santa Claus!

Domestic Violence is a topic that many Americans refuse to address until something tragic happens. As the crime rate increases and the hospitals and funeral intakes rise, as U.S. citizens with rights to freedom of speech why are we not doing and saying more?
Social media has become very influential in today's society, can we use this tool of influential power to speak up and out against domestic violence? Truth is violence is happening in every facet of life, the sad thing is that many of us believe that we are not affected. Reality says we are all affected by someone else anger and pain which both correlates to domestic violence disputes. Consider partnering with organizations that encourage those who may have experienced abuse to come forth and they show compassion to each individual without stereotyping those persons. Let's do more in our world.
I believe that together we can make our communities violence-free, it starts with you and me.
