“This program is the number-one reason why women like me don’t give up hope and keep going. For the first time we felt like we were seen for who we really are.”
Adira, former participant
“We were proud to be in this group so we can grow again. We were able to talk about our experiences of trauma to strangers and it was because of the facilitators’ understanding, empathy and support.”
Jamie, former participant
“Nobody can go back and start a new beginning, but we can start today to make a new ending. The group watered our roots and helped us to grow. We learned to hold our head high and realize that the system does not define us. We learned to believe in ourselves again.”
Noor, former participant
“Always remember: even in the darkness, we can still see the stars. I was finally heard and it was because of this group.”
Billie, former participant
“If you want something you’ve never had before you’ll need to do something you’ve never done. This is the first time I’ve ever gone to a group. Be bold. Be brave. Be kind.”
