The I SEE YOU Box
Stephanie arrived at Mosaic House, feeling very sad that she had to leave all her belongings at her house, just so she could get out safely.
After we welcomed her and did our incoming resident procedures, we took her to her room. She walked around the room and said, “There is a cute box someone left.”
We quickly replied, “No, it’s for you. The I See You box was made with lots of love, thinking just about you and all thanks to Hagar’s Heart.”
Her response: “Wow. You already have something special for me. It makes me so happy that someone thought about me without even knowing me.”
As she looked through the box she said with a big smile on her face, “There is a product inside this box that I use to have at home. I couldn’t bring it with me. I can’t believe it’s inside this box.”
-Stephanie, I See You Box Recipient
The I SEE YOU Box is delivered monthly to our domestic violence shelter partners. It is a box given to a woman when she first arrives. The I SEE YOU Box is packed with specifically chosen self-care items to bring a message of: You are seen, worthy, loved, and deserve a new beginning. The Hagar's Heart letter placed in the I See You Box is an inspirational and encouraging letter written to the woman from someone who cares.
