I am Refocused Podcast Show is brought to you by RefocusedMagazine.com live at Rockafellas Barber Shop every Thursday!

Today’s guest on I Am Refocused Podcast is Linda Canizales, M.A. Director of External Affairs and Volunteer Relations FVPS Family Violence Prevention Services, Inc. The Battered Women and Children’s Shelter

The mission of the Family Violence Prevention Services, Inc. is to break the cycle of violence and to strengthen families by providing the necessary tools for self-sufficiency through delivery of emergency shelter, transitional housing, education, effective parenting education, and specialized intervention with youth and the elderly.

Agency History

In 1977, Ann Whitehead, a local social worker, realized the pervasiveness of domestic violence in San Antonio. She envisioned an environment where victims of abuse could find respite from fear. She enlisted the help of Reverend Don Baugh, Director of the San Antonio Community of Churches, and together with faith, determination, and $400, opened the Battered Women’s Shelter of Bexar County on March 8, 1977. The three-bedroom house on San Antonio’s north side was immediately filled to capacity. Concerned citizens raised money, collected food, clothing, and diapers, and operated the shelter on a day-to-day basis for the first year. As demand for services steadily increased, the shelter moved to a larger, converted church building south of downtown San Antonio, and it remained there for 24 years.

By the mid-eighties, comprehensive domestic violence literature had been developed. This increased community awareness of family violence and prompted public funding for domestic violence programs. As women revealed their stories, it was soon realized that the victims’ needs exceeded mere shelter. Many victims had witnessed violence in their homes as children, and statistics pointed to the pattern or cycle of violence. In 1987, the Battered Women’s Shelter of Bexar County initiated a program to break this cycle. The needs of both women and children were identified and programs were established to meet these needs. Services such as transitional housing, non-residential counseling, legal services, medical services, and educational opportunities and support were introduced, to comprehensively help victims of violence move toward real and lasting independence. Over the years, many collaborative relationships with other community organizations were forged to ensure that victims could easily access all needed assistance. The Battered Women’s Shelter of Bexar County became a model for the nation by introducing innovative and wide-ranging programs. For the first time, victims of family violence had real choices.

In May 2002, the Battered Women and Children’s Shelter moved into La Paloma De La Paz, a shelter complex which can accomodate 222 people, and includes a school, a medical and dental clinic, and two transitional housing duplexes. La Paloma De La Paz is located on property that includes a complex of residential and supportive services that together provide a cost efficient synergy of services and expanded options and choices for all clients. Family Violence Prevention Services, Inc. operates the Battered Women and Children’s Shelter, along with its location at 7911 Broadway where non-residential services program staff are housed. FVPS has 12 transitional housing single-family dwellings across San Antonio to assist victims of domestic violence in making a new start, and continues to work with community leaders and organizations to build and innovate, with the vision of a San Antonio free of domestic violence.

Today’s guest on I Am Refocused Podcast is Victoria Khaze of Money Munchkids®

Bio

Victoria has almost a decade in business and over five years in marketing. She specializes in small business strategy and marketing. Victoria is a four-time published poet and has been featured in several local and national publications. Victoria believes in hard work and leading by example. She has been an entrepreneur since she was in elementary school when she started her first business making and selling jewelry. Despite her business bug Victoria has a laid back and casual demeanor. She’s creative, silly and almost always the first person to make a joke. Oh, and she’s a total nerd.

“Be the change you wish to see in the world” – Mahatma Gandhi
“The only person you’re truly competing against is yourself.” – Captin Picard S1 Ep19

Money Munchkids® Mission
Money Munchkids® is a company dedicated to teaching kids between K-3rd Grade financial literacy and money management. The goal of Money Munchkids® is to teach children about basic financial terms and principles in order to provide a sound foundation for their lives as adults and the financial responsibilities that await them.

About Money Munchkids®
Money Munchkids® was started in 2013 by Victoria Khaze. After over a year of research and beta testing, she launched the Money Munchkids, starting with the Financial Education Kids Course which has been in several LAUSD schools and recreation centers. Since then we have created educational activity books, educational home kits and a financial education curriculum for school classrooms. Money Munchkids has been featured by CNBC, California Jumpstart for financial education, LA Parent magazine, ADDitude magazine, several parenting websites and radio shows.

About The Creator
Victoria Khaze is the creator of Money Munchkids®. Money Munchkids® is important to Victoria because of her little brother and so many of the kids she’s known in her life. Victoria often saw kids mimic adults by “using their credit card” or saying they’ll just “go to the bank and get the money” for something. It showed her that a lot of kids aren’t taught about money. It was these personal experiences that brought Money Munchkids® to life.

“I believe the best gift we can give children is knowledge and a good foundation for all of the financial decisions and responsibilities they will face in the future.”
~ Victoria Khaze
