A safe respite for women and their children
We foster a community where every woman and child can find their strength, reclaim their rights, and contribute to lasting change.
As a result of an increased awareness and our work at prevention, there is a significant reduction in (and ultimately the elimination of) all forms of abuse.
We believe each individual has the right to
- live in a nonviolent environment;
- raise children in a nonviolent environment;
- freedom from abuse and the fear of abuse;
- expression free from control and isolation;
- pursue personal growth and the development of individual talents and abilities;
- adequate services for children who have been harmed by a violent home environment;
- be empowered so that autonomous choices can be made;
- be treated in a non-judgmental, validating manner; and
- receive help in gaining personal insight and making positive decisions for the future.
