The Lord Mayors’ Community Fund

May our stories of strength and success provide you with

hope and inspiration to help you

Rebuild your life after domestic violence

The organisations were very pleased receive these books as they know what a difference they make to the women in their numerous refuges and shelters across Brisbane. These books remain in the refuges, so they are not just read by one woman. Many women can read one book, over several years to come providing practical steps, encouragement and suggestions to break the cycle of domestic violence. A gift that allows them to feel they are not alone and that will give hope and inspiration.


Micah Project were very happy to receive the Terror to Triumph books, thanks to this grant from the Lord Mayors Community Fund as well as our latest book Shattered to Shining. All as part of the Give a Book for a bed Campaign

Lutheran Services were also very thankful to receive the Terror to Triumph Give a book donated through the Lord Mayor Community Fund. These will go to the domestic violence refuges run by Lutheran Services in Brisbane providing their clients with twelve stories that tell the practical steps taken t physically, emotionally, psychologically and spiritually to journey from darkness to light and rebuild their lives.
