#ThrowbackThursday to 2001 when Cinthia, a graduate of WomenRising, told her amazing story about how she overcame many obstacles and challenges to become the powerful woman she is today.
A few months ago, WomenRising began hosting domestic violence support groups for detainees and inmates at Hudson County Correctional Center. WomenRising’s Domestic Violence Advocate, Devangi Raval, explains more about her experience working with imprisoned and detained women in Hudson County and their struggle after they are released.
The most relieving part of a survivor of domestic violence’s life is when they leave their abuser and are free of the domestic violence relationship. However, this can also be a very stressful time for the survivor. When a victim of domestic violence leaves their abuser, they often leave everything behind: their apartment, furniture, clothes, etc. So, when they are ready to get back on their feet, they are starting from scratch.
