As a program rooted in the Christian faith, we speak the truth of God’s disdain for abuse while empowering women to make their own choices and in their own timeframe regarding the best solution for their situation. We are beginning to scale the program to provide access to women across the country with a culturally competent program to serve all women regardless of their beliefs, race, ethnicity, sexual identity, educational, or economic status.
