Speak Your Truth

Speak Your Truth

Staff and volunteers are inspired daily by the victims who come to Schuylkill Women in Crisis (SWiC) for services. We are amazed at their strength and courage. We think that one woman summed it up when she said that she had gone from being a victim to a victor.

We acknowledge that the challenges victims face are real and daunting and, at times, feel like they are never ending. SWiC views abuse as a community problem requiring a community solution and we invite you to join our efforts...if and when you are ready.

One way that you can help is to recognize the power of your own story might have in inspiring others — perhaps those not as far along on their paths as you are on yours — with some even just wondering if they should take the first step. Your story could also be used to help raise awareness, improve SWiC's or other community systems'response to victims, or motivate others to support our work. Signficantly, many tell us that sharing their stories, whether in writing or on video, increased their own sense of strength and empowerment.

If you would be willing to share your story, SWiC Staff are here to provide resources and support during the process and to do so in a confidential manner. You can also share your story anonymously below. Please do not provide any personally identifiable information! You will not be contacted and potentially identifying information will not be shared. We will only share your story. If your story is approved, you may find it in the following section.

Living in fear is no way to live.
