Pain 2 Purpose was started because Shanda Roberts wanted to give support to women who were victimized by domestic violence. The name 'Pain 2 Purpose' came from an article she was reading where a woman lost her husband in the line of duty. This woman began paying for other officers meal in restaurants. She said she wanted to turn her 'Pain to Purpose'. Shanda didn't know why, but that stuck with her. So she immediately put a name to her idea.
Pain 2 Purpose is a team of women desiring to motivate and encourage victims living in shelters that they are worth loving. We also focus on teens and teen dating, since that is where Shanda's story began. We feel that if we reach teens in their dating age, we can help prevent having a world full of victims.
