OUR ANTHEM

SAFE HARBOR

OUR ANTHEM

We live in communities we love – where our neighbor waits for her husband to leave the room before she exhales. We live in communities we love – where families are under attack, from within. We live in communities we love – in a culture that’s numb to violence. A culture that asks, “Why doesn’t she leave?” without seeing all that stands in her way...

Life looks different for all of us right now. For most of us, staying home is the safest thing to do. For victims of domestic abuse, the recommendation to stay home is terrifying. Home, for them, is the least safe place. We need your help to adjust our services to be a safety net for victims and their children now, when they need it more than ever.

I am a survivor of domestic violence.


“I didn’t know that I was being abused...

I am a survivor of domestic violence.


“I didn’t know that I was being abused because my definition of abuse looked different. My husband pushed me, but most of my suffering was verbal and psychological. I left my husband to protect our young daughter. Almost immediately I felt the weight of his oppression begin to lift. I could see a difference in my daughter as well. Then he broke into my home and assaulted me in-front of her.

I sought help and was led to Safe Harbor. My daughter and I are in counseling now. I am sorting out the mess that abuse has caused. I am finding my voice and seeking opportunities to grow and better my life as well as my daughter's. She will gauge her self-worth from my own self-worth. I must show her that she deserves the best, by expecting the best for myself.

Many years I suffered in silence. By telling my story and being honest with friends and family, I am taking control of my life again.”

- Beth
