Women Empowered Against Violence, Inc.
June 1, 2010

I had grown in a cycle of violence but I did not know it until my last relationship. That's where I found WEAVE. When I went there I was unsure about surviving domestic violence because he had never hit me. I realized after meeting with my therapist that I had experienced other kinds of abuse. If it was not for WEAVE, I would still be in the cycle of violence, through counseling I was able to realize I was worthy enough to have violence in my life-period. I am grateful for WEAVE, I learned a lot about myself and healed many wounds from my childhood to my present wounds. Thanks WEAVE!
