"The whole theory of change behind FreeFrom’s work is, if a survivor can afford to get out and stay out and rebuild, then they can create safe homes. And only if they are in safe homes can their children and the next generation heal and break that cycle of generational intimate partner violence.”
Sonya Passi, Founder, FreeFrom
