About us

We provide a safe space

 
Women experiencing domestic violence need to be able to “talk out” in a safe, protected space, without fear of repercussion or stigmatization; and feel confident that they will be understood and supported during recovery.

We aim to provide that space to fuel the conversation, while working with existing agencies helping domestic violence victims to ensure that when women speak up, they are guaranteed the resources they need to rebuild their lives.
 



"The moment you accept responsibility for everything in your life is the moment you gain the power to change anything in your life."
