Gale Blake is the founder of Recovery to Rebound Inc. As a 15-year survivor, Gale understands the toll that domestic violence can have on women and their families, and founded Recovery to Rebound Inc. to meet the needs of those impacted in the Dallas/Forth Worth area.  Through her organization, she provides the resources needed to get people back on their feet. She offers shelter, counseling, and legal services to those affected, as well as providing food and clothing through in-kind donations from the community. Their mission is to turn every victim of domestic violence into a survivor and to leave those that are helped at Recovery to Rebound Inc. empowered and free.

"Everyday I look for ways to support our women to recover and rebound into their purpose and live the best life they can live." - Gale Blake

Gale explains that giving means to extend your hands out to people that need your time, support and efforts.  She believes that if people give from their desires of the heart, they will always be a winner.
