Our advocates partner with survivors on their individual journeys to gaining renewed strength and empowerment. We listen to survivors as they describe their needs and help them identify resources that will enable them to build safer lives. By tailoring our support to each survivor, we are able to truly respond to survivors’ unique barriers, challenges and goals.

meeting survivors’ needs

We offer a wide array of services that help survivors heal from domestic violence.

Survivor-Driven Advocacy

Our advocates deliver survivor-driven advocacy based on what individual survivors identify as important and needed, including safety planning, emotional support and resource referrals.

24-Hour Helpline

Our 24-Hour Helpline is staffed by advocates who provide options, resources and support to domestic violence survivors, their families and members of the broader community.

Support Groups

Our adult, youth and children’s support groups provide survivors with safe spaces to share their experiences, process trauma and learn skills to help them heal.

Legal Advocacy

We offer survivors legal advocacy, helping them obtain protection orders, file for divorce, develop parenting plans, and navigate immigration concerns and other legal matters. We partner with local attorneys to offer prop bono consultations. Last year, LifeWire provided 842 hours of legal advocacy to survivors and their families.

Mental Health Therapy

LifeWire offers one-on-one mental health therapy for survivors and their children, which can be key to increasing each survivor’s ability to heal from the emotional and often traumatizing effects of domestic violence.
