How Libera Is Different
Libera [Lee-BEH-Raa] is for every woman who wants to be free. We often think of freedom as a physical, external thing. But freedom is something we can lack internally in many different ways. Libera is about transformation and hope. How free do you want to be? Click here to give: https://www.givingtools.com/liberawv
A little about what we do.
Many women are bound by various emotional chains. Chains of shame. Chains of rejection. Chains of insecurity. Chains of depression. Through the sharing of stories of how women became bound by these chains, we help them gain the courage to reject these prisons. A few examples of emotional barriers: do you feel ashamed of the […]
Women often face difficulties in relationships related to power dynamics, learned helplessness and abuse. As women begin to recognize the ways they are bound in unhealthy relationships, they can find their voice and begin to live in strength, taking steps toward relational health. A few examples of relational barriers: do feel emotionally stuck in […]
As we take steps toward emotional freedom, we will also find our way toward spiritual freedom. Far too often, religion is used as another way to imprison women when it can be a way to offer greater freedom. As women gain emotional freedom, they can begin to connect with a spirituality that empowers rather than […]
Women are often told that they are intellectually inferior to men. Despite women earning nearly half of all of the PhDs in STEM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics) fields, women often drop out of these fields far earlier than their male counterparts. By showing women that their intellect is important, we hope to encourage women to […]
Women who experience emotional freedom can still be hindered by physical or circumstantial limitations. We will also provide assistance to women who are trapped in abusive and violent relationships by working with nonprofits that specialize in those areas. We will work to educate and raise awareness of human trafficking, and also provide volunteers to work […]
Sometimes women feel trapped due to financial constraints. We will encourage women to learn skills and use their talents and passions to create a better financial future.

What people are saying.
“The principles of Libera have helped me realize where I come from and have given me the ability to work through issues that have created significant barriers in my life. I’m on a path toward a more emotionally healthy life. I’m realizing that it’s not wrong to be strong as a woman. I’m finding it easier to stand up for what is important to me and not be as much of a people pleaser. I’m on a path toward freedom.”-
Our vision is a West Virginia where women are empowered to live in freedom-
one woman at a time.
