MORE THAN EDUCATION...
Our Support and Transition services are meant to build skills, confidence, and economic stability. By offering these programs, we hope to foster independence and “give wings” to survivors so they can go on and live exceptional lives free of abuse.

Free Legal Services & Advocacy
