Abuse in its many forms (mental, physical, verbal, and sexual) is a global epidemic, and its victims transcend race, ethnicity, age, gender, and socio-economic status. Moreover, it has the propensity to leave its victims in a perpetual state of despair and worthlessness if left untreated or unchallenged. Cathy Howard is no stranger to the ill-effects of abuse. However, she never gave up! She is a woman who truly embodies the word, "Overcomer." Leaving home at the tender age of 16 to pursue her dream of becoming an actress, life became rather difficult for Cathy and she knew that pursuing an education was a necessity, hence graduating at the age of 20. Once again defying social norms, Cathy was still a virgin at 20, yet she experienced her first sexual encounter by being raped. Her dreams were shattered by this horrible occurrence, and bitterness, pain, and distrust quickly entered her heart. This devastating experience changed Cathy and led her into a street life of partying, gambling, drinking, and abusive relationships with men, which led to more rapes and beatings. Cathy continued along this downward spiral until one day she had a supernatural encounter -- the day she accepted Jesus Christ as her personal Lord and Savior. It was then she began to discover the power of forgiveness and repentance, which completely transformed her from victim to victor! Now, her misery has become a message of HOPE (Helping Other People Effectively) to People who are in Pain, needing to Process so they can discover their Purpose that will deliver them from Poverty to Prosperity, allowing them to be Prosperous in every area of their life. As a result, she has translated her pain into a book entitled, In and Out the Dugout: The Resurrection from Street Life. Ms. Howard, has endured many trials and tribulations in her life from being raped, abused, and betrayed, to facing homelessness, and now being on the rise in transforming lives through her organization called Dugout 7 Ministries of Performing Arts Studios, Inc.
