• No More Excuses by Mable Dunbar and Colin Dunbar
"Why She Stays, When She Leaves," presented by Dr. Mable Dunbar at the 2014 Summit on Abuse "Anyone can be abused, and anyone can be abusive," says Mable Dunbar, Ph.D., L/P.C. She is founder, president and CEO of Women's Healing and Empowerment Network, established not just for safety, but for healing. Dr. Dunbar believes that the majority of people who have not been abused have little or no idea what it's like to feel totally worthless, totally ashamed, totally hopeless and totally powerless in the way that an abuse victim feels. They do not understand how the whole process of abuse gradually deteriorates a person little by little, piece by piece. In this presentation she discusses what we can do to help a victim find safety, and who is most effective in helping a victim escape an abusive relationship.

Polly Westman and Mable Dunbar
Mable C. Dunbar, Ph.D., L.P.C., founder of the Women's Healing and Empowerment Network, named it Polly's Place. One day, I had a visit from Dr. Mable Dunbar. I liked her and her passion to help hurting, battered and broken women and children. Her dream was to shelter, educate, counsel, and love these dear ones to a healthy and happy life by bringing Jesus into the healing process. At the public shelter where she worked, she was not allowed to pray with her clients, even her Christian clients. She needed suitable housing and grassy acres for the children to run and play. She found just the place of her dream, and it was for sale. She found the owner of the property, and there she was in my office with no money to purchase it, but with a heart full of love to give to others. She knew this was the property God wanted her to have for her mission. Mable named it Polly's Place, and before the home was officially open, there were clients waiting in line for help. Polly you are loved, valued, and appreciated. - Mable Dunbar

Mable Dunbar founded a local nonprofit that focuses on supporting Christian victims of domestic violence
"We need to take a deeper look at the role religion takes in perpetuating abuses," says Mable Dunbar. Helping other women heal has long been Mable Dunbar's calling. As the founder of the Spokane-based nonprofit Women's Healing and Empowerment Network (WHEN), Dunbar has over the years supported hundreds of women trying to break free from the cycle of domestic violence and abuse. WHEN stands apart from other local groups supporting battered women because of its mission as a nondenominational, faith-based nonprofit focused on serving clients who identify as Christian. Dunbar explains that these women of faith are more likely than non-religious people to justify the abuse they're receiving because of their beliefs. "In my experience, religion has been one of the greatest perpetrators of domestic violence," she says. Some of these women also are fearful of the moral repercussions of breaking up a marriage or a family, Dunbar says. "We use the same Bible to show women that the text is not interpreted correctly, or is being partially quoted, and we show them where God says that he really loves them, and wants them to be in an environment where they are safe and can worship freely," Dunbar says of the healing process. Dunbar first was called to the cause of aiding domestic violence victims while fulfilling internship requirements for her master's degree by working at a domestic violence shelter in Michigan. "We were sheltering Christian women, and I realized there was a need to have a shelter that catered to that population," she says. Dunbar first opened a healing center in Michigan after a wealthy donor offered a rural property to be used as a shelter facility. If we have space available, she can come back and repeat the program," Dunbar says. Although WHEN's main focus is supporting women who have been abused, the organization also hosts an annual conference in the fall that offers workshops to support male domestic violence victims, and to educate male abusers who are aware of their ways and seek to make a change. Though domestic violence touches all social and cultural demographics, Dunbar believes such abuse is much worse in religious communities than the general population.
