In 2000 I was a victim. The y counseled me, housed me, helped me get a home and taught me how abusers indicate women to believe that what they got, they deserved. Now years later I an empowered and strong. I raised strong boys who treat women well. I learned more there, then in school. I want to help women get on their feet and advocate for them
