Khrystian A. Styles- Visionary & Executive Director
A SURVIVOR!.. Having been subjected to both.. never having shared because of shame, self-blame and sheer embarrassment, Khrys decided there has to be a better route to 'life after abuse'. Inspired by the mere idea that she was not able to help her friend out of her tragic situation, Khrys has become the face for survivors of sexual and domestic abuse. Khrys has been giving back to the community in a variety of ways for decades; whether its reading to school children; delivering food to needy families; serving in the soup kitchens; driving through the streets of Cincinnati giving out coats and books from her trunk; donating clothes or time to the shelters; ministering in the prisons or sharing her gifts and talents to audiences in need; Khrys has always been involved in outreach. Although an accomplished radio & television personality; award winning commercial and stage actress, Khrys does not turn down a request to give-back if it’s within her means. Driven by the loss of her friend, Khrys has managed to launch, promote and maintain The K.A.S.S.I.E. Project without a budget. However with the help of supporters and friends spreading the mission to encourage survivors to Share.. Heal.. Live is being recognized as a nationwide necessity.
