Silver Lining

Lady’s Legacy

Our Mission

Kathy’s Legacy Foundation serves children and pets impacted by domestic violence. We revive hope, restore normalcy, and inspire dreams in the lives of children orphaned by intimate partner violence.

Her Legacy

Kathy was a respectful daughter, loving sister, and devoted mother. She was passionate about leading a joyful, meaningful life. Kathy enjoyed raising her daughter (Madison), training for half marathons, spending time with family, snuggling with her dog (Lady), and growing her furniture business. Kathy had an infectious laugh and a fun-loving sense of humor. Her considerate, thoughtful, and gracious personality endeared everyone to her.

Kathy was determined to make a positive difference in the world. Kathy’s Legacy Foundation was established in Kathy’s memory to preserve her spirit by helping other victims of domestic violence.


Your time and talents will make a positive difference in the lives of families affected by domestic violence. Share a couple of hours a week or just a few hours a year. Your involvement is important to improve the quality of life for these families.


Your gift today is an investment in the lives of children and pets impacted by domestic abuse. Together we will make a positive difference in the lives of the silent, under-served victims of domestic violence.
