I'm raising money for The Bully Su***de Project and your contribution will make an immediate impact, whether you donate $5 or $500. Every little bit helps.

We've included information about homelessness of Women Veterans and what we are experiencing on a daily basis. My journey gives you an upclose and personal perspective of reasons why a Women Veterans Regional Transition Center and Shelter is warranted and why it should be just for Women Veterans and run by Women Veterans.

As a Vietnam Era, USMC Veteran, and as the Founder of the Bully Su***de Project, I have dedicated the last two years of my life to totally understanding the dynamics of why homeless Women Veterans would rather sleep under a bridge or on a park bench at night rather than use many of the designated shelters, foundations and facilities for supportive help. After interviewing several homeless Women Veterans and living at three of the "top" facilities in Dallas, Texas, while volunteering at a Veterans Resource Center for my "research". I am in a unique position to address this ever pressing issue. To say that I am still reeling from the abusive treatment and disrespect I suffered at the hands of those professing "love" for the less fortunate is an understatement.

Mission:
It is our commitment at the Bully Su***de Project to fulfill President Lincoln's promise: "To care for "for HER" who shall have borne the battle, and for his widow, and his orphan!" We believe that we have to extend the previous statement to include "HER" as the situations and circumstances have borne out that Women Veterans have been a footnote instead of, far too often, being apart of the major conversation of honoring the men and the Women who are America's Veterans.

Our Women Veterans Initiative is being undertaken by the founder of the Bully Su***de Project- Dr. Audrey Oates Newsome, a Vietnam Era, Marine Corps Veteran, and her staff with support from additional military Veterans from the Army, Navy and the Airforce who believe that Women Veterans deserve to be treated with dignity and respect and that "now is the time for a comprehensive "bricks and mortar one stop shop" of our own to address our needs". The VA has 152 major facilities created by men, for men and run by men. It is imperative that those who want to help, get a real upclose and factual report on the dire situations facing our homeless Women Veterans on a daily basis! For this reason I share my journey and ask you support for Women Veterans..

My Journey :
The first facility I stayed at, run by men, was the largest foundation that actually housed men, women and children. It was a religious facility and touted a "Veterans " program. 90 women lived in one large room. After four weeks I had not been able to speak to a Veterans Rep., my clothes were stolen, I was accosted in the middle of the night by "the head of secuirty" and her three huge bodyguards because she felt "I thought I was special". So in fear for my safety, the next morning I called a couple of my Dallas Police friends to come and get me out of there. And by the way, the facility was filthy and the "supervisors" (homeless women hired by the foundation) got first dibbs on all food and clothing donations. This was a religious facility.

The second facility was for women only and again religion based. The pervasive spirit of disrespect was still very much alive. The food was disgusting and as in the first facility, all of the homeless women had to leave the premises and be gone all day until just before dinner and "chapel". But the facility was always out of the buss passes that were supposed to be distributed to those seeking employment or needing to go for medical purposes. The conditions of the living quarters for the homeless women should have been against the law. There were 8 women in a little room not as big as an efficiency and only big enough for two women.The showers and bathroom equipment were broken constantly as in the first facility.

The third facility was again for women only, but being the sister facility to facility #2 echoed some of the same negative issues. Religion is not negative but the way it was used rendered no value when it was used in place of everything else. Again supervisors were very disrespectful to all of the women and these supervisors and "disciples" received all of the good food first. There were 8 women to a one bedroom apartment all sleeping in one room. We had no access to television, couldn't use cell phones, food was usually expired when we received it to cook. Buss passes that were supposed to be a part of the program never materialized. So once again, if you didn't have a friend to pick you up you had to hang out on the streets or go to the public library. Additionally, staff destroyed all incoming mail and absolutely no visitors allowed.

I also volunteered at a large Veterans Resource Center at the same time I lived in the shelters. They (male veterans) were happy to see me and to use my help, so I thought. I volunteered from 7:00 am to 3:00 pm M-F for almost a year. I reorganized their Resource Room, to make it easy to distribute supplies to the homeless veterans. I reorganized the clothes closets, sorting incoming clothing donations. I helped all veterans in the Computer Lab and helped with claims, job searches, and general info. I helped serve breakfast and lunch on a daily basis and helped with special events held at the center.
Then, I was sexually harrassed because I recommended and volunteered to set up a database for check-in purposes and record keeping because the antiquated paper copies of check-in forms were being shredded without officially capturing the information. I was told I was full of "Shi* and stirring up trouble. I still have 22 emails from the perpetrator on my cell phone because I decided to leave rather than put up with the abuse.

I shared my journey because the citizens of the US need to know what really happens with these shelters and homeless facilities that are suppose to take care of some of our most precious citizens!

The Bully Su***de Project is a 501 (C) 3 non-profit organization. Our comprehensive programming addresses bully prevention and su***de, gives hope to victims and provides educational training to those impacted by bullying and cyber bullying behavior. We target students, Women Veterans, and seniors. Our focus lies with the arts, education, and mental health of those affected by bullying and su***de, ensuring that we also bring our programs to the economically disadvantaged organizations and individuals. Therefore we partner with several organizations and individuals that enhance and support our message- "Life gets better with HOPE". We spread hope! We save lives!

Our newest initiative is to form a network of anti-bullying advocates, women and Women Veterans to bring awareness of and assist in the transition of bullied and abused Women Veterans back to civilian life and provide needed gender specific services and support in a safe, state of the art, LEED Certified facility. This challenge represents a call to action for all members of our communities, and Women in particular to Inspire, educate, and spark action from all sectors of society -- citizens, communities, businesses, nonprofits, faith-based institutions, philanthropic organizations, and government -- to ensure female service members and Women Veterans have the opportunities, resources, and support they have earned.

Our mission is to add to the spectrum of support for Women Veterans when it comes to safe and dignified care, not take the place of the VA (or any other center or facility), or circumvent their responsibility for taking care of men and Women Veterans in this country!

Please join us in welcoming the Founder of the Bully Su***de Project, Dr. Audrey Newsome, literally back to the living. After being sidelined by a heart situation that none of the doctors seemed to be able to pinpoint, and she literally "Coded Black", Dr. Newsome was brought back to life and in her words , "to continue her important work in the fight against bullying wherever we find it." Her passion is stronger than ever and the organization has added a new target audience, Women Veterans. Dr. Newsome is a Veteran of the United States Marine Corp, and after doing research while she has been rehabing, the research has confirmed that women veterans are being bullied and abused in facilities that are supposed to give them shelter and comfort and they are the fastest growing population of su***de victims! Stay tuned for the new program and find out how you can help!!!

School is starting back tomorrow for most districts. ( August 24, 2015). And of course the bullying will resume as well, unfortunately. So I am pulling out the school documentation form so that you can have it at your disposal when school begins.
Some school administrators will deny reports made concerning bullying. We have personally met and dealt with a parent who reported her child being bullied 17 times with no action taken. That child committed su***de at 9 years of age and the administration denied any bullying had ever taken place or reported. Nothing was ever documented!! So please use the form!!! It will make a difference.

At the end of the day, bullying is bullying. I am a United States Marine Corps Veteran and have been reading the reports of Veterans being put off and not being scheduled for healthcare in a timely manner. I have also discovered that Women Veterans are being bullied and abused at facilities that are there for their support but there is no safety or security for these Women Veterans at those facilities. Consequently, we are working on a new project for Women Veterans who have been bullied and abused at these centers. Stay tuned for more!

The school year will be coming to an end in a couple of days. The one thing that stood out after working with many parents was the fact that after reporting incidents of their children being bullied, there seemed to be a major lack of documentation being kept.

So we have come up with a simple form to take care of that!
