I thought I had it all. I married my husband, we had two beautiful children and we were happy. But this all changed. My husband became an emotionally abusive partner who controlled my every move. My children and I were trapped inside our own home and I felt like there was no escape.
Fortunately, I found Women In Distress when I fled to stay with my sister in South Florida. Over the past year, Women In Distress has helped me get my children back in school, locate an apartment, and find a job. They even furnished our new home thanks to donations from the Women In Distress Thrift Store. My kids and I now attend therapy at Women In Distress and I am constantly amazed by the support we receive as a family. The therapists and counselors at the Outreach Center have provided us with the tools, inspiration, and confidence we need. We grow stronger each and every day.
Advocacy: Women In Distress provides services to children of all ages such as respite care, children’s therapy groups and individual counseling. Parenting classes are also offered to participants.
