Domestic Violence Survivors Are Empowered to Reclaim Their Lives

Forty-five survivors will graduate Thursday, June 27, 2013 from the Amanecer Domestic Violence Program, following their successful completion of a year-long program designed to help them reclaim their lives after suffering years of domestic abuse. The program has brought hope, empowerment, and self-sufficiency to more than 2,000 victims of domestic violence over the past twelve years. “Amanecer has helped hundreds of women and their children rebuild their lives after living the nightmare of domestic violence,” states Tim Ryder, Executive Director. “This program supports our most vulnerable clients: poverty-level, often homeless, and primarily Latina women and children, who need intensive therapy, one-on-one support, advocacy and help accessing community resources that can really help change their lives.” This year the graduating class includes two men. The graduation ceremony is a celebration of new life and possibilities for the graduates. The program they have completed provides individual and family counseling; support groups; job-readiness, life skills and parenting training; access to housing, employment, childcare, education and other community resources; court advocacy and translation services; and individual case management to help each victim build a safe and violence-free life for themselves and their family. For many, the graduation ceremony is the first recognition of achievement they have received. Each graduate wears a cap and gown, receives a diploma, gift bag, and family photograph. Female clients also enjoy a beauty makeover.
