“Success is to be measured not so much by the position that one has reached in life as by the obstacles which he has overcome while trying to succeed.” --Booker T. Washington
Change is often hard, and learning to break a lifecycle of violence is even harder. Our women and children work very hard to make positive changes in their lives. It takes courage, strength and an abundance of determination to succeed. All successes, small and large, are important and cause for celebration. We are proud of all their achievements.
