Review for Women Empowered Against Violence, Inc., Washington, DC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

WEAVE saved my life. I had been so emotionally (and at times physically) abused for so many years, and kept enclosed in the bubble with which my husband circumscribed my life, for the longest time I didn't even realize that this was not normal. Finally I woke up one night when he threatened to kill me, and the very next day I called WEAVE. My counselor worked magic with my consciousness and my energy every time I visited her. Whenever I got caught up in detrimental head trips, she refocused my attention within my body, the feelings in my body and energy. She always brought me back to my true self, leaving me calmed and strengthened. By the time I actually managed to leave my marriage, WEAVE had worked miracles in healing and empowering me. It was one of the most positive experiences of my life. I am a far stronger and wiser woman for this experience. WEAVE is so vital to our community, to our sisters. Please support them any way you can.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

My inner consciousness where I found healing and wholeness, and my outer life where I found safety and sisterhood.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Hire more awesome counselors like Heather Powers.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

I am safe, happy, and more alive than ever after having survived many years of marital abuse.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Truly dedicated, selfless, and skilled healers and servants of the community.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Save more women from abusive relationships, open to more women how to live their lives positively and healthily, and bring together in safe space an ever-growing community of women who have been empowered by WEAVE's work.

Ways to make it better...

It was so positive, I honestly have no complaints.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Finances.

One thing I'd also say is that...

My gratitude and admiration for WEAVE are beyond bounds. I'd do anything for them.
