The Mission of Because She Is... was to provide a location for victims of sexual, physical and emotional abuse to go to that is run solely by survivors. Because She Is...wanted a place any victim can go, comforted in the knowledge they are speaking to survivors who have experienced the thoughts and emotions they are trying to resolve. Similar to AA, Because She Is... wanted victims of trauma to know they have a growing support system.
Our first location in Middletown, NJ - Marilyn’s Place - opened September 4, 2018.
Our long term goal is to open more placed and begin chapters in many towns and locations that meet on a regular basis and accessible to all.
