THE STORY:

"For the first time in years I can finally breathe.  I realize that I was not really living.  I want to help more women like me."   Words of Survivor

Access, Inc. is a non-profit community based agency located in the heart of San Diego in the community of Linda Vista that was established in 1967. Access, Inc.’s mission is to address the needs of the most vulnerable and under-served populations in San Diego County, especially transition age, at-risk youth; recent or unassimilated immigrants, and victims of domestic violence, trafficking, or other forms of exploitation, opening doors of opportunity to them by providing counseling, education, case management, legal assistance, career exploration and placement services to assist them to achieve self-sufficiency and economic independence.   www.access2jobs.org

The Night Jasmine Almost Died:

"The one occasion where he hit me was when I was 7 months pregant.   He threw me out of our home and told me I was a whore and that my place was in the streets.  That night I lost consciousness because I had fallen on the floor and I don't know what else happened until I was in bed and he was placing a cotton ball with alcohol under my nose.  I regained consciousness and I told him that I couldn't breathe and asked him to help me.  He told me the only thing I deserved was to die, and if I did not die, he would kill me.  I told him I was pregnant and he told me he did not want this child and that  I was more of a value dead than live to my child.  He said the only reason I was alive was because the only thing he wanted from me was to have more children."

Our 18 Year History Transforming Victims into Survivors

Since 1997, Access, Inc.'s VAWA Legal Program has helped thousands of women like Jasmine who are physically, sexually abused, or subject to constant threats and humiliation leaving them feeling helpless and worthless.  We provide legal assistance, advocacy, and financial education to help the victim regain her sense of self and move on with her life, free from abuse.  This program also trains young women and men to educate other youth about unhealthy relationships.

We have one month from September 28th to October 25th to raise as much as we can to support more women like Jasmine who face special barriers to achieving  financial independence.    In addition the the money we raise, we have the chance to win cash prizes ranging from $10,000 to $100,000.   Please support our efforts to empower more women like "Jasmine".     Every donation counts!
