  • I really struggled in the beginning… afraid of the stigma attached to domestic violence…. having to ask for help. It was humbling. Advocates helped me be accountable. They set me up with referrals. They were constantly positive. They knocked every barrier down for me …. physical, emotional, mental. I kept saying to them, ‘Why are you so nice to me?’and they replied, ‘If only you could see what we see’.
