Women come to us in times of crisis,
as survivors of rape or domestic violence.
They come for job training and career counseling.
They come for childcare. They come for health and fitness.
They come for a variety of reasons. But they come.
And they leave with a renewed spirit, new skills,
and stronger lives.
