Abuse is never ok! Many people may not be aware or reluctant to speak up against violence because of fear. Access to the right information is integral to empower the women we serve. Access to the right information leads to better decisions. It is important to have a safe space for these women and children to be able to freely speak their truth.
Mary Open Doors welcomed two student volunteers from Loras College. They assisted us with doing interviews with past clients that have stayed in the shelter and continue to overcome the violence of the past. They have found their voice and strength to speak up about what they went through so that others are able to learn from it.
Sharing information can create a safer and more informed community.
