Through my work with clients who have experienced domestic or sexual violence, I have learned that community knowledge surrounding the reality of abuse plays an important role in outcomes of dangerous relationships and situations. This collection is made up of local organizations that serve survivors and families, books focused on educating the community and other tools to help victims heal from violence-related trauma. It’s my hope that these resources may start to open people’s eyes to the reality of violence and the ways in which we can serve one another as we continue to heal and hope.
