Annette Oltmans, founder of , experienced personal, spiritual and institutional abuse. Domestic violence in the form of covert emotional abuse had been an everyday struggle and reality. When she reached out for help, her trauma became exacerbated by the Double Abuse® she experienced by certain friends, counselors, and church leaders who either refused to believe her or responded with judgment, ultimatums, incorrect therapeutic treatment, or patriarchal demands. This Double Abuse® pushed Annette further into oppression, isolation, and hopelessness. What helped give Annette the validating clarity she needed was seeing Double Abuse® occur simultaneously to a minor aged child. This experience deeply resonated with her own, illuminating the truth of what she had been suffering. Involved with International Justice Mission as a donor, Annette contemplated numerous cultural blind spots that had been on the global stage and responsible for multiple abuses. She questioned, “Who Is Confronting These Systemic Blindspots Here At Home?” Thus, was born. Realizing that healing takes place through strong connections, now offers a comprehensive pathway for victims in their various communities to access empowering tools while supporting alleged perpetrators in finding proper accountability.
