This past week, #ValentinesDay presented an opportunity to remind ourselves that we deserve to be loved  by other people and by ourselves. Loving yourself means taking good care of yourself and we incorporated self-care activities such as a sip and paint party at one of our domestic violence shelters, where residents enjoyed cider, baked goods, and painting.  Have you taken a moment for #selfcare today?

After years of frustration and failed attempts, survivors of childhood sexual abuse prevailed Monday in Albany when lawmakers overwhelmingly voted to loosen one of the nation’s tightest statutes of limitations to give victims more time to seek criminal charges or file lawsuits. We are so proud of the work we do.

Thanks to the passage of the #ChildVictimsAct, future generations of New Yorkers will be born in a state that protects them from abusers, and gives survivors a new path to justice. Thank you to all who've worked so hard over the last 15 years to bring abusers to justice.  #NYCVAToday

"After months of convincing her parents, Angela finally got the chance to make her dreams come true. But she would soon discover it was actually a nightmare; she was tricked into becoming a labor trafficking victim. For three years, Angela was paid roughly 30 cents an hour to work 12 hours straight, seven days a week. 
A family friend contacted the authorities, who referred her to Safe Horizon’s Anti-Trafficking Program. Safe Horizon empowered Angela with the tools she needed for starting a new life."
