I first heard about the Future, Hope & Healing Center in August 2019. My children and I had fled from an abusive relationship, moving an hour and a half away to escape him. He had threatened to kill us, so we had to leave.
Leaving an abusive home requires resources to remain safe. Many victims walk out of their homes with the clothes on their back. They have no safe place to sleep, no money, day care, food, clothes.
“Why doesn’t she JUST leave?” The number one question I am asked about victims of domestic abuse, so why doesn’t she just leave? Where will she go? How will she feed her children? How will she pay day care? How will she buy food, clothes, medicine, and other basic needs?
