“Helping Abused Grow And Recover”
Disciples Women’s Ministries of Arizona
Christian Church in Arizona (Disciples of Christ)
HAGAR is more than the acronym, Helping Abused Grow And Recover. It is the name of a Biblical woman who was abused. Genesis 16 and 21 tell the story of Hagar, given as a concubine to Abraham, abused by Sarah, and eventually cast out into the desert with her child. Family/domestic violence includes sexual, physical and emotional abuse. HAGAR represents the victims of abuse in every generation. The purpose of the HAGAR project has been established to:
- Raise the awareness of Family Violence as it pertains to church and community.
- Help victims of Family Violence through awareness and ministry.
- Provide funding through grants to programs, groups, and organizations ministering to victims of Family Violence.
- Work for the end of Family Violence.
The Rev. Sadie Lowrey HAGAR Project began in 1991. Since that time well over $100,000 has been awarded to organizations which minister to victims of family violence. Hundreds of lives have been touched and forever changed. Thank you to all who have supported The Rev. Sadie Lowrey HAGAR Project in the past.
