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.

We are proud to work with volunteers like Marcos and Andreas (below) who brought the magic of chess to the young residents at Freedom House domestic violence shelter last year. The chess workshop was “a place for the kids to learn and also to engender a sense of community.”
