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.
