HEALING AND HOPE IS AVAILABLE FOR EVERYONE

Survivor Stories

THE POWER OF CREATIVE EXPRESSION

Survivor Art

Our Art Program Coordinator works with survivors to create works unique to them, using art as an authentic expression of their experiences.  . The mission of The Willow art program is to provide opportunities to survivors for them to express their voice, and start on a path towards healing and recovery free from abuse, violence and control. 

SPOKEN LIKE A TRUE HERO

In their own words

Empowering Voices, our Domestic Violence Awareness Month 2018 art show, featured a number of survivor stories.  Some have been gathered over the course of our years, and some were new.  All stories have been used with the survivor's permission, and actors have been used to record the stories, for confidentiality.  If you are interested in sharing your story, we would love to hear from you.

I wish I had known...

I didn't think this was abuse...

Finally happy

Her childhood back...

Share your story

We would love to hear from you.  By sharing your story, you can help others to feel not so alone and express yourself in a forum that is public and safe.  Stories can be  submitted directly to us with your permission to use them., either in recorded or written format. Stories will be re-recorded by actors for confidentiality. Names and places may also be changed.

Your stories are safe with us

We want to keep your story both loud and safe. Each story is transcribed with locations and names being changed to protect the confidentiality of those involved.  In addition, all stories are read by actors who receive no personal information except the transcribed text.
