ABOUT THE INITIATIVE

We walk alongside victims of domestic abuse to help them identify, recover from, and resist abusive relationships through support groups and classes for women and teens from abusive contexts. We partner with BIOLA’s Center for Marriage & Relationships (CMR) by providing teaching and self-defense courses with Tim Muelhoff.
