Nikki’s story – Recovering from domestic abuse

As part of her recovery from domestic abuse, Nikki was introduced to her Local Area Coordinator Ren. Nikki and Ren quickly formed a bond of trust with Ren making it clear she wasn’t there to judge and direct, rather to support Nikki to make her own decisions to live the life she wanted. This eventually included Nikki discovering new skills and sharing her gifts and talents through much valued community activities. Nikki now has other people in the community looking up to her, has found her voice again, and also regained the power back that was once lost.

“I now feel like even though I have my mobility issues, and even though I have my emotional issues, she’s given me that power back that I lost.”

Thanks to for producing the video.
