Domestic Violence, homelessness, family emergencies, and the other heart-wrenching circumstances that WomenRising encounters on a daily basis are both real and raw. They enter the lives of the women we serve with a deep vengeance and leave them distraught and vulnerable. The strong and capable women that we serve who suffer through horrific experiences deserve our support and our means to help them receive a fresh and relieving start.
With a spirit of hope and renewal, we look forward and we seek a future for our women filled with happiness and wholeness. We empower victims to become survivors and we help them to realize their innate dignity and potential is crucial to the healing process.
