Intern Spotlight

Intern Spotlight
Safe Harbor Voice  |  November 23, 2020

I feel like I could write a million reasons why domestic violence is something that I am passionate about. Domestic violence is sadly woven into the fabric of our society and does not discriminate. I knew I wanted to intern at Safe Harbor a few years ago after my best friend almost lost her life to domestic violence. Safe Harbor does so much to be a part of a solution for domestic violence, and I want to be a part of that solution.

In light of International Men’s Day, I wanted to share a few thoughts of my own! As a primary prevention coordinator, I spend time in conversation with teens about intimate partner violence, healthy relationships, and the role that Safe Harbor plays in assisting and empowering survivors.

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
