Witnessing domestic violence does not temporarily impact a child; it will affect them for their entire life. Every year, between 750,000 and 900,000 children witness domestic violence in this country. All children react differently to witnessing such suffering based on their age, sex, race, and stage of development.
Our mission is to raise awareness and provide employers with practical support and tools to take positive action in the workplace.

When I told them what was going on they supported me wholeheartedly – everything from giving me a company car to go to counselling, time off to see lawyers, and they believed in me. Each person's journey is personal and full of dignity and grace. That's critical for people to know. And it's critical for people to know that they are not alone”
