Reclaim Your Life: Securing a New Home After an Abusive Relationship?

    In Partnership with

We understand that sometimes the joy of a new home can arise from unfortunate circumstances. With 1 in 3 women and 1 in 4 men as victims of [some form of] physical violence by an intimate partner within their lifetime, we realize the significance of beginning a new chapter in a new home. While facing this reality, Redfin agents are here to help victims of abuse find a new home that brings them comfort, security, and happiness.


" It turns out that a staggering number of women experience similar realities. According to the American Journal on Addictions, 75 percent of women who enter treatment programs report having experienced sexual abuse. And according to the Journal of Traumatic Stress, an alarming 90 percent of women who become dependent on alcohol“suffered severe violence at the hands of a parent” or “were sexually abused during childhood.” And there is not only a strong correlation between childhood sexual abuse and addiction, but one exists between later incidences of sexual assault and addiction as well."    (read the article)




This is a wonderful resource for survivors who want to 'get it out' but don't know who to talk to!

To RECOGNIZE that non-consensual sex is sexual assault.
To IDENTIFY situations in which sexual assault may occur.
To INTERVENE in situations where consent has not or cannot be given.
To CREATE an environment in which sexual assault is unacceptable and survivors are supported.

One of our sexual trauma resources for survivors comes from
 Rebecca Born, of Connections 

words of wisdom from Rebecca Born:

I want to propose a shift in some of the words we use when looking at sex abuse so that we can create a different possibility.

  • Victim or survivor - Typically when we refer to someone who has experienced sexual trauma, we use the word survivor. They haven't survived it - yet.  They got through it.  With much collateral damage done to their sense of self, and their view of the world.  The person is first a victim, and does not become a survivor, until they have done the difficult work of overcoming the impact of the trauma. When we tell someone they have "survived" before they have done the hard work necessary, we leave no room for healing.  A victim can begin to put responsibility where it lies and see the need and possibility for restoration.

  • Every 9 seconds in the US a woman is assaulted or beaten.
  • There are 1.3 million female survivors of domestic abuse each year
  • Around the world, at least one in every three women has been beaten, coerced into sex or otherwise abused during her lifetime.
