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

Rating: 5 stars   Featured Review

WOMAN, Inc. is an excellent organization that helps keep women alive and safe. They helped me navigate a complex and painful time. I left my boyfriend after he seriously injured me in 2015. I was shocked, in pain, and afraid after he assaulted me. WOMAN, Inc. helped me move forward to safety and a happier future. In a world that frequently blames and shames victims of domestic violence, the people of WOMAN Inc. are consistently understanding and supportive They educated me about the nature and patterns of domestic violence, which are often not identified in the early stages as abusers are often inconsistent in their behaviors, often kind, sometimes cruel, etc. WOMAN Inc. referred me to the helpful lawyers at the non-profit Restraining Order Clinic. They also referred me to an excellent therapist with expertise in the field of domestic violence. That has been extremely valuable to me. I know now that, although domestic violence is common, many general therapists are ignorant regarding patterns of domestic violence in the early stages and characteristics of clever abusers. You want an expert therapist for these cases and they can be hard to find. WOMAN, Inc is a worthy and valuable organization. My future is bright now and I am grateful for WOMAN, Inc.'s significant assistance in my life during my very challenging times.
