Violence Against Women knows no age limits

“The life I’ve lost.”  Those were Maryann’s words the first time we met her.

Viciously abused by her husband for 67 years. You can imagine how painful it was for Maryann to reflect on the happy, peaceful life he had robbed her of. And the harm he had done to her and her children.

“I want young women to know they don’t have to stay married if they’re being abused.” ~ Maryann

We were able to help Maryann, but 1,400 elder women reach out to BWSS each year because they’re still living in an abusive situation. That is more than 3 senior women every single day.

Learn more about Maryann’s story here.

Your gift will also help us:

  • Work with immigrant and refugee women (and any woman experiencing violence or intimidation) to navigate the legal system.
  • Provide crisis intervention.
  • Provide support and guidance in a number of different languages.
  • Give thousands of women each year the courage to speak up, to stand up, and to leave their abuser.

Any gift you can give today will help. Thank you.
