We are HER provides voice for abuse survivors

Hennepin native’s blog impacts seven states, three other countries

After helping more than 100 survivors of abuse through the website “We are HER,” Hennepin native and Putnam County High School Class of 2010 graduate Stevie Croisant was awarded a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt non-profit status. She’ll be using her new online community to help more abuse survivors.

The We are HER community currently spans seven states and three other countries, Denmark, Germany and the Philippines. The website has provided a voice for abuse survivors by giving them a way to share their stories with others who may be experiencing similar situations.

“I am so grateful that HER has moved to this next stage. It means HER can help even more survivors as they begin their healing journey,” Croisant said.

Croisant created the community in 2016 after leaving an abusive relationship. Since then she has worked to help other survivors find the resources and support they need, and many have shared their stories on the We are HER website.

Goals for 2018 include the expansion of the community through the creation of more survivor-centered events and a podcast.
