Success stories are from survivors that have used our programs and services. Read Crystal’s story below and learn how AAFV has started helping her during her time of need.
My name is Crystal, I moved into Hopes Door in April 2016. I was 9 months pregnant and getting out of an abusive situation. I had my baby girl one day after moving into the shelter. I had relapsed on Meth and started treatment before coming to Hope’s Door. As soon as I moved in I met with a Service Specialist to start applying for housing for me and the baby. I filled out several applications and applied to the CATCH program. After being here a few months I found out that I had a serious health issue and needed surgery. The staff at Hopes Door was very supportive and extended my passes so that I could stay with family to recover.
In October 2016, I received a call from CATCH that I was next on their waiting list. The staffs at Hope’s Door helped me collect all the paperwork needed and gave me a good reference. I was able to move into my apartment on December 20, 2016. It was the best Christmas present ever. I will forever be grateful to all of the staff at Hope’s Door.
