Offer your reflections or support

to those who have suffered violence at another’s hand. If you need to vent or ask questions, perhaps some of our members/survivors on our message boards can give a helping hand, and guide you, through their own experiences, reflections, and changes. Some of us, have found a light at the end of the tunnel. The longer we remain away from our abuser or any abuse, the brighter the light seems to shine…

Tell us your story

or make recommendations for the those still living with violence and abuse. There are many of us who are survivors, and telling our stories may help us come to terms with the changes we must make. And for those who are still living the physical and mental abuse, and have not yet made their decision to leave, perhaps this site will help you take the necessary steps towards freedom and self respect.
