In support group, survivors are connected with their peers and see that they aren't alone and no longer have to deal with the isolation and secrecy abuse in the home can breed.

Our innovative Domestic Violence Information and Referral Center, an online interactive community network involving 34 agencies, provides a safe space for domestic violence service providers to share, network, and access updated information so that to domestic violence survivors.

I worked closely with WOMAN Inc. when our company held a domestic violence awareness campaign and introduced a DV workplace policy. Jill Zawisza and her team are amazing. Knowledgeable, compassionate, thought leaders, and wonderful partners. I highly recommend WOMAN Inc.

Becoming a volunteer at WI 2 1/2 years ago is one of the most positive things that has happened to me. I had intended on volunteering temporarily to fulfill a school requirement and was offered the opportunity to participate in the 40hr training to become a long-term volunteer. The staff and volunteers are amazing, and I've never been in an environment as supportive as the WI office!

W.O.M.A.N. Inc is AMAZING! I started out with them as a volunteer in 2011 and have moved to a staff position. My experience with them has been nothing but wonderful. I have always felt welcomed and through out my years here have learned so much from staff, volunteers, and clients. It really does take a whole community of people to make a difference and W.O.M.A.N. Inc. embodies that!

W.O.M.A.N., Inc. recognizes that domestic violence is a community issue and community healing is a powerful thing. The organization is currently creating an organizational culture where advocates act as facilitators and we're collaborating with participants by learning how they heal and we're providing them with tools and leadership skills so they can take it back to their communities. I love that W.O.M.A.N., Inc. is working towards adapting a social justice framework and is being intentional about making sure diverse voices are at the table, specifically people of color.

WOMAN INC has a different approach that involves their clients into the design of their programming. It's a pretty inspiring way to do the end of ending violence and seeing survivors as whole people.
