Survivors, Inc.

Survivors, Inc. started as a group of local women who came together to provide support and discussion to one another as a result of their individual experiences with violence. This first meeting occurred September of 1982, and the recurrent thread was one of survival. The group formalized and took a name, Survivors, to honor that theme in their work together. Following the initial gathering, a needs assessment was conducted among human service agencies and other professionals, and at that time 759 women had accessed those organizations seeking help from battering in a 12 month period. Recognizing an unmet need, the volunteer group mobilized. A short time later Survivors incorporated, applied for tax exempt status and sought to be recognized as a nonprofit organization.
