Domestic Abuse is in our Community
Ruth, a religiously observant and educated woman, walked away from her comfortable home to protect her young children from her husband’s physical abuse. She was overwhelmed and emotionally depleted from years of financial, verbal, and physical abuse. On her own she was physically safe, but struggled to take care of her family. She had no money and could no longer afford to pay rent. She didn’t know what to do or whom to turn to for help until she learned about JF&CS Journey to Safety.
