I am honored to be connected to and a part of WIANL. I have watched Joyce Kyles over the years guide the organization as well as gain the trust of the community. WIANL is committed to showing victims of DV that there is VICTORY. This is not an subject to talk about; but WIANL shows bravery and continues to keep the conversation going. Ms. Kyles is very transparent when sharing her journey and listeners are motivated to make a change or offer support. WIANL is a trusted community partner.

As a member of the Junior League of Memphis and one of its wellness training coordinators, I reached out to Joyce with Walking into a New Life to virtually speak to our 1,300+ membership during Domestic Violence Awareness Month.

She was engaging, knowledgeable and spoke from personal experience of her resiliency to overcome such a dark season in her life which took great courage and transparency. She provided valuable resources to seek help for those experiencing DV, current statistics, how to recognize the signs of domestic abuse and ways to offer help to those in need.

I would definitely recommend Joyce and Walking into a New Life if you or your organization is looking for help and/or a dynamic speaker who's professional, personable and knowledgeable within her field.

Partnering, connecting, and serving with his program has been the best partnership in my life. Mrs. Joyce Kyles is truly an example of hardworking, leadership, impact, and dedication. She is absolutely a game changer and changing lives each and every day for women who are going through domestic violence. We are so grateful for the positivity and light she shed into our lives of making us become a better woman and what to avoid if we are ever attached to a dangerous situation or relationships. This nonprofit needs all the attention for doing awesome work in our Community. We are glad we are working with her to make a change as well.

I was once in a domestic violence situation and never told anyone. When I met Joyce, she made me feel comfortable to talk about about and explain to me how to help others who has been in a situation like myself. They are here to help!

Walking Into A New Life is more than another non-profit. It walks beside you as you gather the strength, courage and wisdom start over. I've enjoyed the educational workshops, pamper session, victim rights, clothes drive and so much more.

You never think it will happen to you. When it does, the shame and guilt can be overwhelming. It's good to have WINL in the community giving a hand up not a hand out.

I have watched WIANL evolve from an idea to Joyce Kyles-1 woman advocate to a registered 501 (c)3 organization and help so many people along the way. Some survivors have utilized the resources provided to leave their abusive relationship, inspire others, confront long suppressed experiences, take care of their family's needs, and even start their own business or organization.

WIANL has motivated people from all walks of life to become advocates for survivors and share their support on many levels. They have held great community awareness events that bring people together and give a hopeful light to such a dark subject that affects us all on a daily basis. Joyce, the board members, and volunteers are doing a great work to impact so many women and men that need help and encouragement to live a violence free life.
