Building Successful Partnerships
All year long, Barrier Free Living collaborates with individual volunteers, organizations and companies who support our mission working with survivors of domestic violence, and their families.
This summer, we held several community Zoom events shining a spotlight on things like LGBTQ+ awareness and our new Secret Garden team. Our Still We Rise event drew great support from people like the much-lauded novelist Sarah Gerard who read from her stunning new novel True Love.
