Author Marissa F. Cohen will be our guest speaker as she launches her book release tour at Marilyn’s Place! The author of the #1 Bestseller, Breaking the Silence, is the Founder and Executive Director of the Nonprofit, Within Your Reach, Inc., that works with survivors of sexual assault and domestic violence by creating an open and supportive community, and training advocates around the country about the appropriate ways to respond to these survivors and warriors in crisis.
Marissa is also a co-founder of the program #IMASTATISTIC in an effort to break the silence by humanizing sexual assault survivors.
We at Marilyn’s Place are honored to be hosting this event and hope you will take advantage of the opportunity to meet this fabulous young woman. Space will be limited so please reserve your seat by March 31st.

Crossroads at Garwood - 78 North Ave., Garwood, NJ 07027USA (map)
Come have ‘linder’ with us (lunch + dinner) and listen to area residents and special guests tell stories of successfully creating new possibilities in the world. We’ll be raising money for Because She Is. The Mission of Because She Is... is to provide continued support for victims of sexual, physical and emotional abuse at their new location - Marilyn’s Place. Opened September 4th, Marilyn’s Place is run solely by survivors so that all who visit know that everyone they speak to has experienced the emotions and struggles of the trauma they have endured. All of the meetings, events and workshops at Marilyn’s Place are FREE of charge. The long term goal of this organization is to open more locations for survivors to turn to.
Marilyn’s Place is excited to announce that we will be visited by Buddy, a sweet Golden Retriever therapy dog! As one of the many “wish list” items and programs we want to add to our special place, Buddy will be making his debut for what we hope will be many more future visits!
