MEET THE FOUNDER
Charmyne “Charlie” Howell, founder of Charlie’s House of Hope, established a faith based nonprofit organization to assist victims of domestic violence on September 9, 2012. Her passion for this cause was driven by her own personal experiences with domestic abuse in her childhood and as a young adult woman.
Charmyne is committed to helping abused women and their children break the vicious cycle of abuse by offering safe, confidential shelter and services. Charmyne has spent countless hours helping others to achieve their goals by encouraging, uplifting and empowering individuals. Charmyne holds on in hope that someday all women and children will be safe in healthy relationships. But until that day arrives, she will continue in her efforts to provide abused women and children a safe place to stay.
