The AWIHS (A Walk in Her Shoes) Academy
is opening Spring 2020
and is designed to support women who are coming out of domestic violence.
1 in 3 women today find themselves in an abusive situation and beyond shelters (that are always overcrowded) and the justice system (which the abuser manipulates to his advantage) there are few resources for women at this stage in their journey to a better life.
For women who have decided to leave, the AWIHS Academy can help. AWIHS can teach abused women the marketable skills they need to begin making money today.
It can offer these women the soft skills that will be required to navigate the difficult times ahead
(the most dangerous time in an abused woman's life is when she leaves the abuser), from building her confidence and skill set to helping her navigate the justice system to managing her own future relationships.
AWIHS Academy is the brain child of Biz Growth Strategist Marissa Stone. A survivor of domestic violence herself, Marissa knows first hand that leaving is a process, a marathon if you will, not a sprint.
Once she decided to leave it took her 5 years to get out and once she did, she went back twice. When she was finally free it still took another two years to get back on her feet. It does not have to be this way.
Leaving an abusive relationship requires planning, ensuring the safety of the children (if any) and yourself, confidence, resources, detachment from the abuser, and a place to go once out, just to name a few.
The goal of the AWIHS Academy is to ensure these women have a plan, resources, marketable skills, programs to increase confidence and self-esteem while reducing dependency on the abuser and a means of putting money away so they will have a place to go once they are out.
****In 2019 and beyond, 50% of the proceeds from #BSVS2019 will be funneled into the AWIHS Academy so that we can impact these women and shorten the time it will take them to get back on their feet.****
