Nonprofit Women Giving Back serve homeless women, children in NoVa

On the moss-green wall of the Women Giving Back store in Sterling, two portraits hang side by side above a shelf of donated books. In the first painting, a woman weeps bloody tears, and tiny white words are written along her dark hairline: “Fear. Pain. Darkness. Shame.” The second painting shows the same woman, her expression brighter and resolute, her face framed by a more positive message: “I am a new woman. I am a survivor.”
