Review for Break the Silence Against Domestic Violence Inc., Colorado Springs, CO, USA
Break the silence against Domestic Violence has personally helped me to grow, heal, forgive and have an over all better understand of myself. Through the help of their women empowerment groups I learned to love myself again, to search deep within myself and truly understand and accept that what happened to me isn't my fault. The women's group has been like family. They are so supporting, caring, honest and loving. I never felt out of place or like I didn't belong. This was always my safe zone. BTS has helped me to have my voice again and to educate my family, friends and colleagues. We do the best we can with the knowledge that we have but BTS helps you to fully understand what Domestic Violence is, how to deal with it, how to heal and how to learn from it. Now I can teach my family and friends about the warning signs and give them thr correct resources. I've added two photos from the women empowering groups and what you can expect. The first one is of a vision board we did in DEC 2015. On it are my year goals and expectations. The vision board was a great way to really put all your goals for the year into one spot. They gave us two hand outs with specific sections such as love, career, self love, family etc. This was a re fun project to do. The second one is of a hand out of a work shop entitled "what's love got to do with it?" This group was about truly understand what love is vs what you thought love was when you were a child. Along with how this effected you as an adult. They gave you a hand out to take home with recommended books and resources to look at, if you wanted to learn more. They gave you great relationship advice and what a healthy relationship should be like. The last picture is of their yearly conference. Free lunch is included with great workshops, self defense classes, motivational speakers and raffle at the very end. Everything is absolutely FREE! Free women's groups and conferences.How much better can it get. All you have to do is show up. BTS is just amazing and very educational. They just want you to be the best possible you. Thank you BTS for everything you do, especially for helping me and every single person you've helped so far. I highly recommend this organization.
