"Daily groups help with not feeling like you are the only idiot who fell for a partner’s lies.

Weekly counselling helps with finding ways to get over the blame, shame, guilt and anger, and start healthier habits.

Bread donations help with weekly grocery budget. Clothing donations also help with the budget.
