Survivors meet in places like the Healing Hallway to encourage one another.
Katie Hugle is a survivor who’s gone through the program with her children. “Nobody judged you. You could say whatever you wanted to,” Hugle said. “By the end of it you understand this is not your fault. And that’s a really good feeling just knowing this is not your fault.”
“When you’re in an abusive relationship it’s kind of like you don’t really feel like you’re alive,” said Hugle. Through regular group sessions both she and her children learned to transform their lives and live again.
