Who is Promise?

Promise is the name of the little girl who inspired Saving Promise.
Hear her share her story:

Promise was only six months old when her mother’s boyfriend threatened to kill her. Promise’s grandmother, L.Y. Marlow, decided that enough was enough; soon after, she walked away from a 20+ year corporate career to found Saving Promise:

“I was the third generation of women in my family to be trapped in the never-ending cycle of violence. Twenty-two years later, my daughter became the fourth when her boyfriend tried to kill her and threatened the life of their baby girl, Promise. I decided right then and there, I would not let Promise be the fifth.

L.Y. vowed to not only end the cycle of violence in her own family, but to make a promise for change at a broader scale.

Join Friends of Promise to honor Promise—the girl, and the idea. Because to us, promise is hope. Hope that when we work together, we can prevent intimate partner violence and create safer communities for generations to come.
