A note from our Founder, Sheila B.
"Words can kill so much of who you are, how you feel-see yourself. Most women don't accept demeaning words as a clear sign or type of abuse BUT it is. I can remember my abuser repeating often that nobody would want me & two children if I ever left him......to hear that over and over again, I sadly believed it. His words began to transform my mind to truly thinking I would forever be alone if I ever left him. Reality was that I was more alone with him than actually being alone. It will be 18 years ago on 8/22 that I decided I was worth more than his words, his abuse of my temple, my being and I walked away to my now. Queens, L🦋ves you deserve life, love, happiness.
