Survivor Stories

“Violence not only causes physical injury, it also undermines the social, economic, psychological, spiritual and emotional well-being of the victim.” Susmitha B, “Domestic Violence: Causes, Impact, and Remedial Measures.”

You deserve kindness! If you or someone you know is experiencing abuse and needs help, please contact Women’s Advocates’ crisis line at at 651-227-8284 or resources@wadvocates.org. To those in abusive relationships, we support you, we believe you.

We also provide educational presentations throughout the community. Want to find out more? Schedule us for an educational presentation! www.wadvocates.org/outreach-education/.

Because of this, NOW is highlighting the resources available to help anyone who might need it in the aftermath of sexual assault. More here.
