Rise From The Ashes is a 501c3 nonprofit, in Chicago Illinois. Providing pro bono legal representation to victims in domestic violence shelters, RFTA aims to help women get divorced, gain custody of their children, and sever the legal ties that bind her to her abuser.

At RFTA, we know that a victim will never truly be free, until the law accepts that the relationship is over.
