Alice Housing has endeavoured on an ambitious project to produce an age appropriate, visually appealing “storybook” of a child’s experience of living in a violent home, the process of leaving that home for safety, and the journey of healing through therapeutic and basic necessity interventions in the form of safe housing, individual counselling and structured groups. Our story book will explore the forms of abuse, feelings and behaviours often associated with a child witnessing and experiencing abuse, safety planning from a child’s perspective and eventual recovery.

“It is not very often that children are able to glimpse into the heart of their own pain and their own fears and somehow become comforted knowing that there is indeed a light at the end of their long dark tunnel and they are not alone in their experiences. Lori Morgan’s touching and insightful book dealing with domestic abuse is an anthem of sorts, giving voice to those who otherwise find themselves without one. Beautiful illustrations along with the straight forward text allow the child and the parent to relate to the entire story, like an ode to wellness and renewal.
If you know someone young or old struggling with abuse issues, this little book will lift and enlighten.”
