The Paula Award

2016 marks Healing a Woman's Soul's (HAWS)  inaugural Paula Lucas Schultheiss Memorial Award for Service to Survivors of Domestic Violence.  Named after the late president of HAWS, the Paula recognizes and honors a volunteer whose work in the field of domestic violence survivor support reflects Paula Schultheiss' passion and dedication to this cause.

The HAWS Board hopes that the many friends of Paula and others supporting this cause will contribute to a fund that we would set aside for the use of the Paula Award.  Donations may be made here.

Donate to Jerusha Hubert Retreat Scholarship


Jerusha's life was about bringing Christ's healing to the broken, especially women victims affected by domestic violence and other abuse.

She researched, collected and wrote our first training materials for parish leaders and often led groups about preventing domestic violence.


To continue her work, since 2011  we dedicate women's retreat scholarships in her memory .   Donations to this fund are welcomed.

Donations for the scholarship or general use can be sent to Healing Women Soul either by mail or by using PayPal.

Prayer shawls

 HAWS provides prayer shawls to women in halfway houses, domestic violence shelters and at our retreats.  Some are made  from material, others are knitted, crocheted, or quilted.  Some are home made, some are purchased. 

We need additional shawls for our annual retreat.   Can you help us?

Email us at and we will make arrangements to pick them up.
