Lurleen Hilliard the founder of Nolonger Victims lived a life of abuse with her husband, it forced her to live this life in Dublin Ireland behind closed doors with her four sons, for over 20 years. Like most victims of abuse, she was isolated, no financial support, no family support, few friends, totally controlled by her husband, terrified of his abuse and whether or not she would wake up the next morning after another night of abuse was the one thought that she went to sleep with every single night. In recent years Lurleen and two of her now adult son's ended up homeless for months, sleeping in their car with their service dog as nobody would offer them help as a family, but instead told Lurleen that her son's could go to a shelter and she could get into accommodation but not as a family. Lurleen refused so they all spent Christmas, Birthdays and every day sleeping and living in their car. It's another reason as to why Lurleen is now more determined than ever to RAISE AWARENESS FOR MALE VICTIMS OF ABUSE, AS ENOUGH SIMPLY IS ENOUGH, Equaity for all not just female victims of abuse but all victims of abuse irrespective of their gender, age, sexuality, religion, race. No abuse is ever acceptable.
Below is a little bit of the abuse that either she or her sons went through and is the reason as to why she is so passionate about helping others. After the people of Alaska literally saved the life of Lurleen and two of her sons, she vowed to dedicate her life to helping other victims of abuse, in particular, and to never forget the people of Alaska. As without them, she and two of her sons would be another statistic in a society that already has far too many.
Over the years Lurleen has written many articles and books about her own abuse and that of her sons in order to highlight the fact that you can get through it, you can live life instead of existing and you can be a survivor despite feeling you're only ever going to be a victim. The following link is one that Lurleen has asked us to share on the site as some people have questioned her about her knowledge of abuse, this is such an insult to her but it's why she never gives up, refuses to be silent and with the launch of our new worldwide initiative #MenToo to raise awareness of male abuse and remove the stigma, we all know that Lurleen is the true survivor, warrior for all when it comes to abuse. https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/letter-from-survivor-abuse-her-deceased-abuser-my-i/ In this article that we've shared the link for you will read about some of the most vile forms of abuse that anybody can endure yet Lurleen did and she's sharing this article not to be seen as a victim but instead as a survivor, and if she can do it then so can you.
Lurleen is also a Psychotherapist specializing in CBT, the reason that Lurleen decided to study CBT Therapy was so that she could provide another form of counseling for those that have tried everything else and still feel that they need some more mentoring, counseling in order to live their life rather than exist in it because of their past. Having studied the benefits of this form of therapy that can be used for so many people, not just those who have endured abuse, but depression, stress in life from financial difficulties, relationships Lurleen is looking forward to using this knowledge, and skills which she has learned while studying CBT Therapy to help those who have given up on all other forms of therapy.
On our home page, you will see the cover for a Directory of Services that Lurleen wrote specifically for Alaska, this directory is unique in the information it contains as nobody has ever written such concise directory of services for one specific state. The intention is that this book will be placed in Taxis, Police & First Responder vehicles and stations, Hotels, Shopping Malls, Library, Airport, Train & Bus Stations, Hired Cars basically anywhere and everywhere that you have people this directory needs to be available as nobody ever knows when they may be the victim of abuse and or when they will need to make that call for help. What makes this Directory SO SPECIAL to Lurleen is that she has dedicated the book in the memory of the 'Late
Crystal McDonald Rice who was MURDERED by her husband after she had decided to leave him and escape the life of abuse both she and her children endured on a daily basis. Sadly Crystal never got to leave, never got that new beginning as he took her life when he played God. Lurleen is very close friends with one of Crystals' sister Jessie who also works non stop to help all victims of abuse within Alaska particularly those within the native community. In dedicating the book to Crystal, Lurleen wants to ensure that her name is NEVER FORGOTTEN and her memory and loss will perhaps inspire others to get out sooner.
Lurleen has been doing a huge amount of work over the last few years across the world with victims of abuse and in particular with victims in the United States of America. The law's there although not perfect, at least offer some form of protection for the victims of abuse and justice. Although they also have issues that need to be addressed they are way ahead of Ireland her home country. That is why Lurleen is DETERMINED TO MAKE HER VOICE NOT JUST HEARD BUT LISTENED TO, not just in some countries but all over the World and in particular in the USA, Europe, UK, Wales, Scotland, Australia, New Zealand and her birth country Ireland.
Lurleen has been endorsed and is recognized by some of the WORLDS TOP ABUSE ORGANIZATIONS AND ADVOCATES
