Living free from abuse goes beyond physical safety. It is about taking an honest self-inventory to address areas in life that may keep someone vulnerable to future abuse. Even though it is hard, adults are grateful for the process because it allows them to live free from future victimization. Adults in our programs take an anonymous survey upon exit to provide feedback. From Jan 1 – September 30, 2019, those who participated shared:
- 97% reported they feel they are regaining control in their life.
- 98% reported their safety improved even after leaving Stepping Stones.
- 97% reported they felt confident they would remain free from abuse.
- 98% reported they know how to plan for their continued safety.
