• To future survivors - you are not alone. Once you take the step into the divorce process, continue and do not quit. Limit your contact and protect your children. Your abuser will go to any extremes to rip you of someone you love so much. Do not give up. - Anonymous
  • The facilitator was great and very informative. I enjoyed the group involvement. Hearing similar stories made me feel like l'm not crazy and that there are many women who suffer from this type of abuse.
  • When it comes to the topic of divorce, I wish I had known about The Center for Hope, WNY before my own. - Anonymous
  • Knowing other women are in the same spot - learning more about why I stayed and how narcissists think and operate allowed me to realize that I wasn't the crazy one. He was purposely treating me a certain way. - Anonymous
