             It is a temporary safe individualized protection used during a movement     
   to a more permanent and stronger protection. It is a metaphor for the support that
       VLMFSS workers provide to women on their journey from a life of violence to a life
           of safety.   Some supports withstand the length of time and some are brief. 
               We hope these umbrellas will stand up to external pressures and
                                           provide protection for a long time.
