Success Story: New Tools, New Perspective

July 31, 2017 Healing Heroes

“Equality” journey towards freedom from abuse took time. For the first year after leaving her partner, the abuse followed her.

But ‘Equality’ never stopped moving forward. She secured herself a basement suite and fresh college dreams. She faithfully attended groups at the shelter that covered topics like abuse, self-esteem, and independent living.

She went on to finish a two-year diploma in Early Childhood Education, and was able to completely free herself from her past relationship. She learned to recognize the warning signs of potential future abuse, and how to maintain a safe and free life.

Upon graduation from our groups, she left us with this statement: “I feel my tool belt is now full. I know I’ll never be in another abusive relationship again.”
