What People Say

  • "My name is Lydia* and I am a survivor of domestic violence. I lived in a domestic violence situation for 17 years. I did not think there would ever be any hope for me, or that I would ever make it out alive. With the help of the few strong amazing women in my life who believed in me. They linked me with Family and Children Services of Niagara’s domestic violence shelter Passage House. If you think that there is no hope, I am here to tell you there is a way out. Once for so long I was silent and now I am ready to speak."
