Systems need to change

Today left me numb, coming in contact with a family that has been totally ignored by police and social services. We had to step in and make our own report! Thank God now they are listening, but it's not ok how they have been ignored! As an organization I see how we must educate systems to truly help victims. We must be trauma informed to know how to help them. If you are unaware of trauma you will damage the family more. Please get informed

Our Society ignores the epidemic of domestic violence. People know this problem exist but they choose to ignore it. As a survivor of violence, it makes me sad to see our reality. We must bring awareness into our communities. We must speak up against the injustice. We must be the vioce for those who are unable to speak. JOIN THE MOVEMENT of change.
