    there is very little resource for them. There is no child support to collect on when someone is in jail and at least in our state they just back off. When it happened to my niece she was left very high and dry, thank gawd we are a big family.

      emotionally, it is difficult to find self-worth sufficient to begin again.  the support of groups like alicia's voice helps give the abused self-respect, dignity and the knowledge that they are capable of having a better life.

      sadly, our "culture" for many years reinforced the lack of value of women and, now - once again - it seems we are having to fight that same battle all over again.

      organizations like alicia's voice empower women and give them strength to stand against tyranny and abuse - we, as individuals, MUST be there to ensure these organizations do not disappear!
