Advocating for Communities
Eagles Wings Sanctuary was founded in early 2017, as a non-profit organization to assist victims of domestic violence in the Central Florida area. Inspired by Christ's love and our passion for women and children we sought to provide a service to the many women suffering from abusive relationships. The need for more resources to empower these women lead us to making Eagles Wings Sanctuary a reality. We believe when provided a safe, supportive, and encouraging environment that all people have the capacity and resources within themselves to grow, heal, and change in which their past will no longer direct their present and future. Eagles Wings respect the spiritual rights of each individual and does not require any religious affiliation nor discriminate according to denomination.
Why have the Lotus flower as part of our logo? We incorporated the Lotus flower as part of our logo because of what it represents. The Lotus flower is a symbol of strength, healing, purity, beauty, perseverance, promise and enlightenment. This sense of purity arises from how it grows. It begins in muddy water, rises above it and turns into a beautiful flower that reaches light/enlightenment. This flower also symbolizes resilience and rebirth. It’s emergence and reemergence from murky water into a beautifully bloomed flower which is analogous to human resiliency. We all possess an innate drive to survive and tendency to thrive, even after living through trying or traumatic experiences like domestic violence. This serves as a symbol for the work Eagles Wings does to help survivors rebuild and reclaim their life after abuse. The Lotus may appear fragile on the surface, but it is flexible and strong, securely anchored under the surface of the water. Many of us live in that murky water, and never make it to the surface so we can blossom. The conditions that produce beautiful life are not always ideal, but that never stops the lotus from rising through adversity, opening its petals, and blossoming in the sun.
