As a child raised in domestic violence, I understand firsthand the fear and anxiety this causes the victim, but sadly the children. I am grateful for organizations like this who provide resources and empower those who decide to leave abusers. As a local volunteer, I find the website JW.org extremely useful in giving victims of abuse hope. I use the search bar and type in domestic violence and a plethora of free articles display. The website can also be translated into any language I need. The I have attached a picture of my favorite article.

May you victims & volunteers keep displaying courage & love!

Partners is an incredible organization with an all-star, dedicated and passionate team. I had the privilege of interning at Partners this summer, during which I was able to take part in its various initiatives both in and out of court. In court, Partners helps and empowers clients to seek protection, and break away from the cycle of violence. Out of court, Partners conducts extensive advocacy work to tackle the systemic challenges faced by victims such as the enforcement of child support and pre-trial safety. Each and every person on the team works relentlessly to protect and support victims and their children, and their experience and expertise are valuable assets to our community. I am very honored to have been part of such an amazing team, and I look forward to seeing the impact of their work resonate throughout New Jersey.
