survivor Stories

STAND! Clients

We celebrate the successes of STAND!'s clients and join them as they recount their journey.  Their riveting first hand accounts are powerful and uniquely personal.  Each is a testament to the courage and strength it takes to rebuild a life.  Heartfelt stories of families once torn apart by domestic violence and child abuse rebuilding their lives and seeking services in unsurpassed numbers inspire us all. 

Share in the pride that these families experience as they take the first steps to changing their lives for many generations to come.  Our combined efforts make it possible for hopes and dreams to flourish.


Celebrity Stories

Well-known speakers featured at STAND!'s annual Rebuilding Lives Luncheon have generously shared with us their own stories of how family violence has touched their lives.

Whether they grew up in violent homes, survived abusive relationships, or witnessed someone they loved destroyed by family violence, their moving journeys remind us that we may not know what is happening behind closed doors.
