“The training was a breath of fresh air. It’s so empowering to be trained by someone like First Light. Their knowledge is amazing due to their experience and the stories are bang on and perfect examples are used to explain the topic being discussed. I wish I had their knowledge in my field and worked in a niche where I was as passionate about my area of expertise. Response [to domestic abuse] is so vast.
