Organization provides bodyguard services to victims of domestic abuse

Bexar County also provides resources to victims

By Patty Santos - Reporter

SAN ANTONIO - A local organization is offering bodyguards to domestic violence victims in an effort to protect them from their abusers.

Fast Facts:

Angel Eyes Foundation was started by Amy Foster and her husband last year. They are working on acquiring their 501(c)(3) nonprofit status.

Foster is a two-time domestic violence survivor. There were issues she dealt with as she was trying to get out of an abusive relationship, and now, she wants to help other victims.

Foster’s foundation contracts security companies to offer free bodyguard services to victims who feel their lives are at risk.

Foster said her foundation also works with friends or family of victims to help build a case for the victims and a plan to assist them from getting out of a relationship safely.
