Women's Abuse Christian Outreach was founded by Cathy Hayter in 2020 in the midst of the Covid pandemic. Inspired by the Holy Spirit, Cathy was led to start a location where women can gather and heal together as the Body of Christ. Through the prayers of the community and generosity of local donors, the inspiration transformed into a reality in 2021.
Cathy has relentlessly served in women's ministry since 2012. She has advocated for victims of sexual abuse by speaking at organizations throughout Tampa to raise awareness about childhood sexual abuse. She has organized fundraisers for survivors of human trafficking. Since 2012, she has facilitated Wildflower retreats at local churches, retreat centers, and a women's health center.

We believe the past does not define YOU. We believe in the power of Jesus to heal and restore.
"Behold, I make all things new."
Our mission is to share the truth and healing power of Jesus to those who have been impacted by sexual trauma
We strive to reach every woman who feels alone and isolated from the shame of abuse by providing a safe environment for healing.
