Who We Are
The Christy Sims Foundation was founded in response to a tragic incident of domestic violence upon its founder, Christy Tucker Sims. On April 28, 2013, Christy was assaulted by her boyfriend with industrial grade sulfuric acid, which burned her over 20% of her body and sent her into a coma for two months.
Since the attack, Christy has been on a long and arduous journey to rebuild her life and the lives of her two children. The foundation, though originally formed to support her on that journey, is now dedicated to the mission of preventing domestic violence and serving as a resource for victims to help them find the support they need.
The mission of the foundation is to help prevent intimate partner violence by providing community-based education and awareness programs for young adults.
Our vision is to become the premier resource in support of the prevention of domestic violence through programs aimed at giving young men and young women the tools they need to build their self-esteem and engage in healthy relationships.
Your financial support, your resources and your time will help us achieve our mission to provide programs that help prevent the spread of domestic violence. Financial donations are tax-deductible, and all are appreciated—no donation is too small. Learn more about donating to the foundation.
