A SURVIVORS STORY
(Real names omitted for protection of the client) As a result of domestic violence, Survivor "A" came to Family Haven after sustaining broken bones and severe head injuries from her fiancé. She was in denial about the abuse she suffered and faced many barriers regarding employment, housing, mental health as well as legal issues. While residing at Family Haven, Survivor A engaged herself with supportive services including counseling, overcoming the denial of her abuse as well as her barriers. She secured employment with the Atlanta Public School System and obtained permanent housing to begin her new life free of abuse.
"I realize now that I don't have to live in fear anymore" - Survivor A
1 in every 4 women will experience
domestic violence in her lifetime.
An estimated 1.3 million women are victims of
physical assault by an intimate partner each year.
Historically, females have been most
often victimized by someone they knew.
