Trenicy Thomas is the driving force behind the organization and fills the Executive Director role. She founded Battered Women in Transition (BWIT) in 2013 as a result of experiences that she endured as a victim of child molestation. As a young adult, she was physically abused by her mother and was a victim of rape twice. Betrayal, hurt, and loneliness were once foreign feelings that soon became acquaintances of hers as she ran away to escape the promising abuse that waited for her at home. Feeling unworthy of love and being told she was worthless, she began to compromise her worth. As a reflection of all previous events, she was later involved in a relationship of domestic violence.
Overtime, Trenicy found strength and resilience to transition from a fearful victim, to an individual with courage and joy. In her transition, a passion for helping victims overcome their struggles unfolded into a reality and gave birth to this organization. Trenicy is now the proud mother of three daughters & one son and is pursuing a Bachelor in Psychology. She has completed an Associate of Applied Science in Nursing and a general studies Associate of Applied degree. It is her desire that BWIT will help women in the Dallas Fort Worth area rise above the negative effects of domestic violence and sexual abuse and go on to lead full, happy lives.
