Our programs will continue providing direct services, and we are collectively making every effort possible to ensure minimal disruption in services.

Survivor Story “I was finally in control of my destiny.”

“… When the Judge granted the Protection From Abuse Order (PFA) I wanted to shout out loud. Instead, I thanked her, I smiled, I turned and walked out of the courtroom to the rest of my life. I was finally in control of my destiny.” -Survivor

You can help victims like her regain control of their lives.
