Unfortunately, most of us know someone who has been the victim of domestic violence. You probably have at least one friend or acquaintance and you just thought of their name, who showed up at work, or school, bruised and ashamed of their circumstances and terrified at the thought of leaving. Domestic Violence and Sexual Trafficking Are Never OK. For battered, abused and sexually trafficked women in Oklahoma, the journey to freedom starts right here. DaySpring Villa is Oklahoma's first faith-based, certified shelter for domestic violence victims and the first shelter of its kind in the state for adult survivors of human sexual trafficking. Here, women and their children discover life without abuse and real-world solutions to restore their self-esteem, confidence, and, ultimately, reclaim their independence.
