Dear Friends, 

Bethany and her daughter were experiencing physical, emotional, and financial abuse from their abuser for years. When he threw a pot of boiling water at her daughter, Bethany knew they had to get out. She called our crisis line, and they were immediately provided safe shelter. 

After a brief stay in shelter, our housing support specialist was able to assist them with identifying, inspecting, and coordinating a move into an apartment. Bethany was able to go back to work and secure a job. She and her daughter are working through their trauma together, and finally able to support themselves in a safe environment. 

Homelessness, domestic violence, sexual assault, and human trafficking are happening in our communities.While we are actively providing safe shelter, confidential services, and housing assistance to those in need, we need your help to make our efforts go even further! Your support is crucial in our efforts in supporting survivors of violence and ending homelessness.
