WIRE was born out of one woman’s haunting memories of past recurring sexual abuse that began upon her person when she was just eleven years of age. Ashamed and frightened that she would be blamed for the sexual assault occurrences, she held on to the secret, that she had been molested by someone she loved and trusted until adulthood.
It was not until her marriage and formal training as a drug counselor began, that she become cognizant of the varied forms of traumatic events afflicted upon many people in her community. That awareness also brought to light an apparent gap in the available program services offered the community, existing programming either lacked gender specificity and/or tended to minimize or neglect the societal and psychological consequences of childhood abuse. Hence, Women in Recovery Education (WIRE) founded by Olivia Davis in 2006 to bridge these gaps in programs and services.
The mission of Women in Recovery Education W.I.R.E.. is to help women and girls address traumatic events and associated stigma through effective dialogue and counseling. Motto: Dealing with Life in Life Terms
