One Woman’s Story, A Journey of Hope and Healing

by Tammie Nielsen



We are delighted to share a heartwarming success story of a brave survivor. Meet Helen, a woman who has endured unimaginable hardships. Her journey is nothing short of inspiring.

The Past

From her earliest years, she faced unimaginable, suffering through sexual, physical, and emotional abuse at the hands of her grandmother and brother. As an adult, she found herself trapped in a cycle of abuse again, this time at the hands of her husband (now ex-husband). Her story is one of resilience in the face of tremendous adversity.

Earlier this year, she took the courageous step of seeking help from The Bridge (this is the most dangerous time for a survivor). Through the support of her advocates and domestic and sexual violence support groups, she began her journey toward healing.

Her Healing

Not only is she mending her physical and emotional wounds, but she’s also nurturing her spirit. Finding solace and support within a local church, she has formed meaningful connections with friends.

A New Futureย 

Helen has achieved personal milestones that demonstrate her strength and determination. For the first time, on her own, she secured an apartment and enrolled in classes at a local University. These are just two of her remarkable accomplishments. Helen has made incredible strides on the path to recovery.

We are profoundly proud to have played a part in her transformative journey towards healing and thriving. Her story reminds us of the power of resilience and the human spirit’s capacity to overcome the darkest challenges.
