Help make a difference. DONATE NOW.

|My tree, like me, may look like any other tree from the outside, yet if one looks closer they would see that is bark and leaves are full of its own stories, life and memory. It has dark spaces that get forgotten and overlooked, places of sadness, shady places that are calm and soothing and sunny places filled with life and hope and joy...|
A tree is a powerful symbol of life. It gathers strength from the help it receives from its environment and it never stops growing or changing. It adapts to seasons and it carries with it an imprint of its life experiences.
Through the Story Trees Project, AWBW welcomes all survivors of domestic violence to join us in sharing our journeys. This is a project of the Survivor's Art Circle (SAC) which provides a creative space
formed by survivors where it is safe to express oneself through art.
