SHE IS NOT ALONE!

HOW WE HELP

We offer relocation assistance to victims who need to escape a domestic violence environment. We will help you out of your current environment to the safety of family , friends, or a shelter.

RELOCATION ASSISTANCE

Bring your daughters, granddaughters, your mother, and a friend. You will learn how to use your fear as a tool, as well as real world techniques to defend yourself and escape danger. Contact us to schedule your class.

CHEAT TECHNIQUE CLASS

If you are being stalked, or even if you fear that you are, we can help. Once we know what you are facing, we will work with you on a safety plan. We never provoke violence. Actually, we do everything we can to avoid it.

STALKER ASSISTANCE

Ending an abusive relationship does not always end the terror.  We will escort you to and from your court proceedings to protect you from intimidation. We also do mock court testimony practice so that you will know what to expect.

COURT ESCORT & PREPARATION

Many victims of domestic abuse lack financial stability because of their situation. We have volunteers to tutor job and life skills to help you become self-sustaining. We also host job fairs to help you find potential employers.

LIFE AND JOB SKILLS COACHING

We are certified in a Lethality Assessment Program (LAP), a program that helps identify victims of domestic violence who are at the highest risk. If you have questions, we can help you by identifying risk factors.

God only knows where I would have been without your help. After being strangled, beaten, battered, and bitten, I was completely physically and emotionally distraught. I will forever be grateful for you and everyone that has helped me and continues to. God Bless each of you!

Actually, we do everything that we can to avoid altercations or confrontations of any kind. We simply want to be a voice for the voiceless because everyone deserves to feel safe. Because we want to help women who are truly in need, we require that the women that we help actively participate in their journey to safety.
