 It can be hard for someone on the outside to understand an abused person reason for staying. 

  • They have nowhere to go.

  • Fear of retaliation towards them or family.

  • A lack of resources.

  • Don't want to be blamed for breaking up the family.

  • Religious beliefs.

  • Embarrassed and doesn't want anyone to find out.

This program is designed to educate the community as to why a victim continues to stay with their abuser even though they are continually subjected to abuse.
