WHAT IS DOMESTIC VIOLENCE?
The Women Against Violence mission is to stop the cycle-of-abuse against women thru prevention and education.
- To reach out to women of all ages, cultural & ethnic and socioeconomic backgrounds
- To educate the community about violence against women
- To educate women and men about the different types of abuse; the signs, symptoms and how to get help
- To empower women so that they can avoid abusive and violent relationships
- To be a resource of information for women who are being, or have been abused
Domestic violence is often more than just physical abuse. It encompasses sexual, emotional, economic and psychological violence.

I decided to create WAV twenty years ago to give women a place where they would feel they weren’t alone. Whether they were in an emotional or physically abusive relationship, felt a need for hope or change in their lives or just need someone they can relate to, WAV is a platform that helps women seek resources, share their stories and ask questions that they would be afraid to ask directly and not feel alone.

THE RE-INVENTION PROJECT
Nothing helps shift your energy more than hearing another woman’s story of Re-Invention.
Now you can share your story with others first hand and know that you have company in your own life adventure.
My hope is that by woman coming together and sharing their stories on how they Re-Invented themselves, will encourage and inspire others. Sharing your vulnerability in itself gives you power. Saying it out loud begins the healing process. Please share your story with us…”
