Survivors to Thrivers

About Us

Our Mission

support groups, workshops, peer support, abuse survivors,

As survivors ourselves, we saw a need for the peer support abuse survivors lacked during and after therapy. We formed Because She Is to provide peer-led group meetings, creative & meditative workshops, and clinician-led workshops, all free of charge.
