Abuse is a deeply personal and sensitive issue, but the internet allows us to talk of it anonymously, without disclosing our identities. 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.

Google the story of someone who died from abuse, and summarize it in a paragraph or two.
The people above were killed by abuse. Help us spread awareness by adding their stories to the Memorial Wall. Just click on one of these photos: the next page will give you a link to news articles about this person, and a field to type up a summary of who they were and how they died. One or two paragraphs is all we need to add them to our database. Aside from being listed on the Memorial Wall, their story will also be displayed on our homepage on the anniversary of their death, and broadcast to other sites and platforms. Let's make sure these people aren't forgotten.
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. The project is created and maintained by abuse survivors; all of our content is contributed by our members and visitors, people just like you. You can help Fort grow by adding your creative work to it, or collaborating on projects where each entry only take a few minutes to complete and can be done when you're bored or needing a distraction. Feel free to contact us with other suggestions or ideas. Thank you for being a part of Fort Refuge and supporting abuse survivors!
The best thing about the future is that it comes one day at a time.
