Chill Girl

A Healing & Support Service

What is a Chill Girl?

Society defines the “Chill Girl” as a woman who is independent and overconfident. She’s just like “one of the boys” – low-maintenance and/or with minimal attention required. She’s the “chilled out, easy to go-along-with and get along with” woman.

WE define the “Chill Girl” as the BOLD, CONFIDENT & COURAGEOUS WOMAN!

What is Chill Girl?

The vision of Chill Girl is to empower survivors toward self-advocacy, self-awareness and self-responsibility; ultimately creating an overall greater sense of well-being and a global community of healthier women and girls.

Chill Girl is a safe space for survivors once silenced due to trauma. We help survivors regain their voice of expression and sense of Self by creating a sacred circle of support.

Overcomers Club

At S.C.A.R.S. we believe that all survivors should celebrate the day they took back their life. We call this day, your Independence Day.

No matter the year or the circumstance…YOU ARE AN OVERCOMER!
The Overcomers Club is a monthly celebration for survivors of intimate partner and domestic violence.

We want to honor you. We invite you to join us for fun and fellowship with other survivors in an nonjudgemental space.

HEAL Transitional Fund

Second Chance At Renewing Self, Inc. administers the HEAL Transitional Fund, a needs-based financial assistance resource available to individuals who need assistance transitioning from situations of intimate partner violence. The aim of the fund is to aid in increasing self-sufficiency and independence.

The HEAL Transitional Fund was created in memory of a mother and her daughter who were killed by an abusive partner, in their Chesterfield County home in May 2015. All proceeds of the HEAL Transitional Fund directly benefit our community by assisting survivors with housing, transportation, utilities and moving expenses, such as truck rental or professional movers.
