Lorraine Whoberry

Stacie Foundation

Lorraine Whoberry knows how a phone call at the end of a workday can change a life forever. She received such a call that started her on a path she never anticipated nor could she imagine the hellish nightmare she was about to endure.

Lorraine was summoned home on a cold day in late January. She was confronted with the news that her 16-year-old daughter had been brutally attacked and had died at the hands of a man who had been secretly stalking her.  And Lorraine’s 14-year-old daughter was also stabbed and left in a pool of blood by this heartless killer.

Lorraine was also a victim of these unimaginable crimes. She had to endure multiple failures of law enforcement, the legal system, and the media. But HOPE survived!  Eventually, Lorraine would escape her mental and emotional prison of bitterness, anger, and the desire to retaliate and she found true and lasting freedom. Now she shares her story with thousands each year who are victims of trauma and pain as many join her on their own paths to freedom. For more of Lorraine’s story, go to

The Sharing H.O.P.E. Center

The Sharing H.O.P.E. Center has opened doors for individuals seeking solutions and connections to overcome significant challenges. Everyone gets “stuck” at various times in life. Physical pain and medical issues can keep us from feeling healthy and motivated. Financial pressure is a major cause of divorce and can lead to serious mental health issues. Addiction to anything from sugar and television to heroin and prescription painkillers can impact our ability to function.

There is H.O.P.E. for those who know where to seek solutions. We are here to be the link to bridge the gap between your needs and the resources that will open the doors for your freedom!

The Sharing H.O.P.E. Center was founded by two women who have been deeply touched by trauma in their lives.
