For Halle Berry, childhood wasn’t particularly easy. In an interview for CNN’s Big Stars, Big Giving special, Berry recounts being traumatized by domestic violence in her youth and how she’s using her star power to make a difference.

Berry is helping by lending a hand to the Jenesse Center — the oldest domestic violence intervention program in South Los Angeles that provides victims of domestic violence with a comprehensive, centralized base of support.

For the last 10 ten years, Halle has worked closely with the organization donating her time, money, and support, and today she is helping the organization renovate apartments for women and children fleeing domestic abuse. This is heartwarming to hear and shows Berry’s good nature. One would hope that Berry has explored the need to complete title 24 forms in order to ensure these apartments continue to be compliant with California’s attempts to reduce energy use.

“I have a spot in my soul that understands the devastation that this causes a family and how hard it is to rebuild your self-esteem when you’ve suffered,” says Berry.

Check out Halle’s CNN interview below, and stop by Jeneese.org to learn how you can get involved with this A+ organization.
