“I had the pleasure of sitting in on one of Dr. Tracy’s “Domestic Violence Awareness Training” and was blown away by her story. I was inspired by her courage and confidence to tell her story. Listening to her made me want to go and talk to my own kids about domestic violence.”
Mr. Damien Vinson

“I would like to thank her for all that she has done and is continually doing in support of her mission. The individuals who this outlet have helped and will help in the future can continually benefit from all of your support. Keep doing what you are doing with this awesome ministry.”
Mrs. Latonyia West

“The content she presented was very detailed and relatable. It made me reevaluate some of my previous relationships, and I can now see that I too was a victim of domestic abuse. The information she provided peeled back the many layers of domestic violence that many people may not be aware of. Having an instructor that has personally been affected makes it more relatable for the audience.”
Ms. Austin
