She became unstoppable when she realized how to turn her pain into her





An average of 24 people per minute are victims of rape, physical violence or stalking by an intimate partner in the United States — more than 12 million women and men over the course of a single year. 


Almost half of all women and men in the US have experienced psychological aggression by an intimate partner in their lifetime (48.4% and 48.8%, respectively). 

Between 94-99% of domestic violence survivors have also experienced economic abuse


70% of respondents on one study with disabilities experienced some form of abuse by an intimate partner, family member, caregiver, acquaintance or stranger.

85% of trafficking victims are trafficked by a family member or intimate partner.

It takes women 7 attempts on average to leave an abuser, lacking the resources, tools or support to survive and sustain themselves and their children post-separation.  


Only one out of 100 people are rescued from human trafficking.  

80% of human trafficking survivors end up being re-victimized if they do not have a safe place to go. 



Human trafficking is a $150 billion dollar global business.  Domestic violence and instances of interpersonal abuse continue to rise across the world.  While there are organizations that provide certain emergency support, there is an unmet need to address the unique combination of issues that keep victims trapped, or returning to the abusive situation.​


HiveStrong exists to address that complex combination of issues for long-term self-sustained empowerment through providing critical wrap around services, a safe space community, and career pathways.​

HiveStrong For Life.​



WHo we help 

Domestive violence, abuse survivors of all types (domestic, relational, sexual, narccissistic, workplace) and human trafficking survivors.

Toxic experiences can occur in the workplace, in romantic relationships, with family members, and in friendships.  Individuals find themselves in these situations unwittingly, often confused or feeling shame for what they are experiencing. Exhausted and foggy from toxicity, the road ahead can be overwhelming.  Toxic experiences are deeply traumatic and destructive at a core level. Recovery requires support. Survivors need and deserve to know they are not facing it alone. 

In January 2024, The HiveStrong Fund was established as a 501c3 non-profit organization to provide HiveStrong services to victims of abuse without financial means to survive.
