HEALING HURTS

Shining The Light on Domestic Violence

Bringing Healing To the hurting one life at a time

Healing Hurts is a 501c3 nonprofit organization providing assistance to single parent families before, during, and after pregnancy.  

We provide services to low-income families regardless of income, race, or religion; as well as reestablishing the role and importance of fathers in the lives of their children. We are a Christian non-profit organization promoting healing to the total being: physical, emotional, and spiritual.

However, our program is not limited to the residents we serve. Our services encompass individuals, couples, families, communities, and churches as we work to rebuild lives that are met with an unexpected challenge. In conjunction with our transitional living program, we offer victim advocacy for domestic violence and sexual assault victims.

The Healing Hurts staff strives to provide you with a loving, non-judgmental environment where you will receive grace and mercy as you grow and mature. It is our goal to assist you in setting and achieving personal goals to wholeness in these five areas:

  • spiritual
  • physical
  • intellectual
  • emotional
  • and vocational

Come, grow with us....

Nefateri Smalls

Nefateri Smalls

Chief Executive Officer

Nefateri Smalls is married to Oddie Smalls and they reside in Ridgeville, SC. This beautiful union brough together a "Brady bunch" of its own with two boys and three girls. When she is not fulfilling the duties of CEO for Healing Hurts, Nefateri enjoys reading, writing, singing, and enjoying time with her family.

Healing Hurts is more than something I do....I believe that not only do hurting people hurt other people, but I believe that whole individuals have a magnetizing domino effect because their own journey to wholeness is a message of hope all by itself.

Oddie Smalls

President

Oddie is married to Nefateri Smalls and resides in Ridgeville, SC. Oddie was born and raised in the Lowcountry (Charleston area). He shares the joy of his five children with his wife. He is what some would call a jack of all trades. Having a large family is something he knows all too well as he is the youngest of 10 siblings. Aside from spearheading the fatherhood initiative for Healing Hurts, Oddie enjoys old time classic car shows, Andy Griffith, and singing.

Healing Hurts carries a special place in my heart. It has never been about a church house of worship, but about seeing to it that whatever I do brings about a change in the lives of those that I am able to reach.

Baby Diaper Drive

YOUR financial contributions will provide hope and the gift of life to single-parent families and unborn children? When you insert coins, checks, or cash into a Healing Hurts baby bottle you are helping to provide free counseling, financial support, diapers/wipes, classes to help single parents do life, and an opportunity to hear the Gospel of Jesus Christ on how to have real hope in the time of a crisis. Thank you in advance for assisting us to “bring healing to the hurting…one life at a time!”

FACTS

1 in 3 US moms report suffering from diaper needs. Government programs do not cover diapers. Diaper needs impact the physical, mental, and economic well-being of children and parents. We provide diapers to Dorchester, Berkeley, and Charleston county residents experiencing hardship. Contact our office if you have a diaper need.

If your group or organization are interested in hosting a diaper drive, or to set up a time to bring in donations you can contact (843)879-2255 or email us at healinghurts@mail.com
