Heels on the Move to Heal is a Dallas-based 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization focused on supporting men, women, and children survivors of domestic abuse and sexual assault while also promoting awareness of these issues to the public at large.
Since its launch in 2018, Heels on the Move to Heal's events and programs have served more than 2,000 families from Dallas and the surrounding North Texas counties by providing clothing donations, financial assistance, support, and resources for survivors, helping them to begin the processes of healing and rebuilding their lives.
In addition, Heels on the Move to Heal has expanded to include youth education and awareness programs through Youth on the Move to Heal. This second initiative provides a dedicated platform comprised of educational programs and initiatives that teaches the next generation of self-starters how to conduct local event planning by giving them opportunities to gain experience in emceeing, performing, and producing, as well as DJ-ing, photography, and videography.

Heels on the Move to Heal has set a goal to raise $100,000 and to collect 50,000 pairs of shoes, with a portion of the monetary proceeds and all shoe donations to be sent to the charity’s beneficiary, Denton County Friends of the Family, a Texas-based nonprofit organization focused on assisting survivors of rape, sexual abuse and domestic violence. The rest of the monetary proceeds will be used throughout the year to assist survivors with the necessities for getting their lives back on track, including housing and utilities payments, transportation costs, personal hygiene products, family meals, clothing, and direct money distributions.
The Heels on the Move to Heal charity shoe fashion show features local women from the community as its models. Women escaping from abusive households often leave with nothing but the clothes on their back, and oftentimes this means leaving barefoot. A survivor of domestic abuse and sexual assault herself, founder and high heel aficionado Kia Davis decided to organize a high heel shoe fashion show as the organization’s signature event.
