Fort Refuge is created and maintained by abuse survivors. We don't solicit or accept monetary donations, and all content is contributed by our members, people just like you. Fort is used by thousands of people worldwide - members of our community and visitors who stepped by to read an article, look up a hotline number, or take advantage of other resources we offer. By adding to Fort, you're helping abuse survivors across the world. Below are some of the projects you can contribute to. Thank you for being here!
Projects you can contribute to:
Tell Your Story
You can publish your poetry, memoirs, "how-to"s, or any other abuse-related writings on Fort.
Abuse is a deeply personal and sensitive issue, but the internet allows us to talk of it anonymously, without disclosing our identities. You don't have to be a professional writer - what matters is voicing your perspective, so that other people can learn from your experience. What was it like, to press charges against your abuser? What did it feel like when your father passed away? How do you handle raising children while having DID? Imagine how many people are facing the same issues and would love to hear your first-hand experience. Share your thoughts, feelings, helpful tips you've discovered, your joys and struggles - that's how our library came to be and keeps growing and helping abuse survivors world-wide.
- By submitting your writing through this page you state that you are the author and that you agree to it being posted on www.fortrefuge.com, in whole or in part. If you don't want it posted and wish to contact us for any other reason, expecting a response - please use the contact us page instead.
- We don't guarantee that all the writings sent to us will end up posted on Fort. Please understand that these decisions are based on technical considerations and do not reflect our opinion on the validity of your story or the quality of your writing.
