Hear From the Women Supported by The Friends of a Woman's Place

 ​”Thank you for everything, for being there for me, when I was alone, in shock and in need of help. You all helped me heal and learn more about domestic violence. I appreciate all the help you gave to me. You are all very appreciated.”
 “This place saved my life and was a true blessing to me and my children’  
“You all made this traumatic part of my life easy to strengthen my self-worth and reminded me of the woman I know I can be and I will be and stay from this day forward. SKY’S THE LIMIT!!”
