Cracking the Door - Shining a Light on DV

"We are so excited to add this medium of communication to our toolbox. Each week [alright, nearly each week] we will post a story or an interview that encourages, enlightens, and educates – or so we hope. Just a note: we are new to blogging (woohoo!), and so we’d humbly ask that you come along with us, as we experience this next chapter at the HER Shelter." - From Blog Post Number One! 


If you ever have a question or idea that you would like to see expanded or explained, please feel free to send them along to Wynn@hershelter.com. These posts are meant to be as educational as we can manage - and that should include feedback from the people visiting our website and supporting our work! 


In case you wondered: All of the posts are written by our staff members! Though we may share content from other organizations or provide links to TED Talks we find fascinating, we do our best to keep it as original and sincere as possible. It's one of our many ways of keeping ourselves transparent with our community.
