Survivors can find strength and healing in telling their stories to others. Their insight and inspiration can save lives.
The National Domestic Violence Hotline has collected stories from survivors across the nation who have given their permission to share them here. Click on the images below to read each survivor’s story.
We exercise caution so as not to expose a survivor’s full name and/or location if their abusive partner remains a threat. Calls and chats to The Hotline are always confidential.
