You have a future away from violence.
You have left your abuser; well done, but what next? We know how difficult it was to leave, and we also know that it might seem easier to go back than move forward. But trust us, you made the right decision, and breaking free is the best decision you have ever made – it may have just saved your life.
The next step
From now on, it is all about you, healing from the past, and building a better future. Through personalized counseling, we can help you break free from the cycle of domestic violence, experience healthy relationships and learn new skills to cope with all that life throws at us.
No time limit on recovery
Counseling is available for as long as you need it. Recovery from domestic violence takes time, and every woman’s story differs. This is why we offer one on one counseling with no expiry date. When you are ready to talk, we are here to listen.
How it works
We meet one-on-one for as long as it takes. We can help arrange childcare so you can talk openly about your experiences. We have a counselor trained in EMDR, which has been proven to help resolve past traumatic events.
We provide assistance and financial support for you to find somewhere to stay short-term. We do not currently have a shelter for women and children to go to, but it is in our plans to open one. Please review our shelter page if you need assistance. Click Here.
We provide survivors of domestic violence in Azle with support in:
- creating an action plan
- helping complete the necessary Government applications to receive financial support
- providing free access to counseling
- providing short-term financial support for housing, care packages (toiletries, clothing etc.), and first-hand knowledge of living in a violent home.
We have been where you are and know how hard it is to leave.
Yes, all the counseling we provide is free for victims of domestic abuse. There is no time limit on recovery, and sessions are one-on-one and confidential.
If you leave an abuser with nothing but the clothes you wear, that is okay; your safety is the priority. But if you can, take your identification, including your and your children’s birth certificates, social security cards, driver’s license, or photo ID. We can help you request replacements if not possible, but it may delay receiving Government support while this happens. Click here to read our guide to leaving an abusive relationship.
At Future, Hope & Healing Center, we help you find somewhere to live, financial assistance, access child care while you work or find work, and counseling to help you start your life afresh. We do not currently operate our own shelter but intend to do so in the future.
Breaking free from an abuser and creating a new life for you and your children takes time. We understand that, so we place no time limit on receiving counseling from our qualified volunteer counselors. It takes as long as it takes for you to feel confident in living the life you deserve.
We can help you gain access to all the support systems that make gaining employment easier. Starting over requires a plan, and we can help you implement one.
