We want to make you aware of recent additions to the Resources and the website.  Take a look when you have a chance.  While we strive to keep information and links current and in working order, you may come across a broken link or an error message.   If so, please let us know by contacting TWBTC (the woman behind the curtain).  See her bio on the About page for her contact information.

Safety Planning:   Three Easy Safety Plans.

These Easy Safety Plans are useful for all victims, but especially for those who have trouble reading or use English as their second language.  It provides step-by-step instructions for implementing a safety plan regardless of whether the victim is living with the abuser, leaving the abuser, or has already left.    We want to thank the Outer South Peninsula Integrated Family Violence Partnership, Melbourne, Australia, for allowing us to use and modify their original safety plan to accommodate our USA audience.

1) Easy English Safety Plan USA – All information and phone numbers reflect organizations in the USA
2) Easy Safety Plan Australia – All information pertinent to Australia
3) Easy Spanish Safety Plan USA,  – All USA information translated into Spanish

Newly configured Prayer Requests Page
With ACFJ being two years old last month the comments on our Prayer Requests has grown to almost 300 requests and it continues to grow.  To help navigate this page we have restructured it by dividing the 300 requests by year (Prayer Requests 2012, Prayer Requests 2013) with the current year (2014) continuing in the comment section of the page as usual.

Also, we have added a new element to the page.  When you go to the new Prayer Requests page you will see a link to the new Testimonies page where you will find testimonies of how God has shown victims that it was His will for them to leave their abusive marriages.  Please note the Testimonies page does not accept comments. If you have a testimony that you want us to consider, email it to Barbara or Jeff.

We are also putting a link to the Testimonies page in the drop-down menu of our New Users Information tab on the top menu and on the Resources page under Deciding Whether to Stay or Leave.

    Wow! I love all of the changes, especially the testimonies page. If there’s a way to search for one’s comments I could probably find mine instead of typing it all over again.

      Fiftyandfree, in both Internet Explorer and Chrome browsers, you may open a search box for the current webpage by pressing the Control [ctrl] key and the F key simultaneously. The enter any word or phrase, such as your screen name, and you will be taken to the first instance of it on that page with options for more instances, if any exist.
