End Abuse Programs 

When the one you loves abuses you, a part of you is lost. Dealing with the fear, confusion, embarrassment and anger can leave women into isolation and hopelessness.

"When Love Hurts" Program

Through our women's support groups, "When Love Hurts" brings women experiencing abuse out of isolation, letting them experience healing and regain hope.

"I'm WAY stronger and I know signs of abuse. I don't think I'll make the same mistakes."

- "When Love Hurts" women support group participant.
