For survivors of domestic violence getting safe and affordable housing in NYC is a tumultuous journey riddled with wait times, delays and ultimately having to prove your survivorship. Here is the story of Sharlena an advocate for survivors of domestic violence!
I am so proud to be part of an organization that represents the diversity of NYC women, including African American, Latina, white, Asian, immigrant, lesbian and disabled women. As a result of my membership in VOW, I have evolved from a survivor of domestic violence into an activist.
