Review for W.O.M.A.N., Inc. - Women Organized to Make Abuse Non Existent Inc, San Francisco, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I love WOMAN, Inc. and I'll be forever grateful that they were there for me at the lowest point of my life. I was leaving an abusive 8-year relationship and my former partner was stalking me. I was so isolated, alone, ashamed and afraid. I went to WOMAN, Inc. for help in getting a restraining order. I will never forget the compassionate woman who listened to me, validated my experiences, and helped me understand just how abusive my relationship had been. They prepared the legal papers and went to court with me. They gave me a voice and I felt so empowered by being able to put my truth on record after years of being shouted down. It's been 15 years and I've since recovered from my abusive childhood and that relationship, but I still look back at that first day at WOMAN, Inc. as my first day of healing. Thank you.
