Domestic abusers often remove choice from the lives of their partners, so giving survivors agency over their stories is important for recovery. We're proud to offer #creative outlets for the families living in our #domesticviolence shelters. #art #fact #nonprofit #shelter #DV #DVAwareness #dance #writing #survivor #hope #storytelling #uplift #inspiration #NYC

We know that #mindfulness can be a powerful tool to help #veterans who are struggling with #PTSD and #MoralInjury .
