THRIVE: Teaching Healing and Recovery for Women In Violent Environments 

THRIVE empowers women by providing education about family violence & opportunities to learn new strategies in life skills to support new life changes.

Why Learn About Family Violence?

•   No one ever deserves to be abused and no one has a “right” to be abusive.
•   Family Violence is the use of intimidation and fear to maintain power and control over a family 
     member. It can include physical abuse and it can also include any form of disrespectful behavior 
     against those claimed to be loved.
•   Family Violence destroys the human spirit.
•   Family Violence is learned behavior. It is behavior that CAN be changed.

·       Have their own Identity...
·       Be heard...

·       Be treated with respect & kindness...
·       Have peace of mind...
·       Laugh, live and be themselves.
