Justine got to know Eric in college, while working part time at a Virginia-based home improvement store. They began casually dating in 1999, eventually marrying in May of 2006. Looking back, her sister, Lauren, can see the red flags.
Alyssa* had been living with her parents and was restricted to a wheelchair due to under-developed limbs.
Sarah joined Women Against Abuse in September 2010 through a partnership program with the German peace and volunteer organization ARSP.
The life-saving work that Women Against Abuse achieves each day would not be possible without the support of advocates in the community.
Lucia* came to the WAA emergency shelter pregnant and with five children.
The Women’s Dining Circle of Overbrook Presbyterian Church knows how to make fundraising down right fun. In January, the Dining Circle hosted a dinner that raised over $1,200 for Women Against Abuse.
Former emergency shelter resident Dana*, intelligent and bright-spirited, worked hard for her credentials.
Sara* was a victim of domestic violence who transformed into a strong and capable mother with support from Women Against Abuse.
“We were just a couple trying to make a relationship work,” reflected Laticia.
When I first met my abuser, I was just 14 years old and he was 20. I thought I was in love, so I ignored the disapproval of my mom and sister.
