Before coming to Hope’s Door, I was abused by my son who had learned abuse from my many relationships, which were all abusive. I lost my home, my car was damaged, and I lost my job.
Since staying at Hope’s Door, I have had a safe place to come to. Classes like Self-Esteem, Boundaries & Safety Planning have helped to build myself up again and give me confidence. I have gotten my job back, got a car & and also have bought my own trailer. Every person’s experience is unique.
I feel the staff at Hope’s Door and Advocates Against Family Violence take the time to listen & respect women’s needs. They give us hope in making choices; the right ones in our lives. Hope’s Door and AAFV gave me the time I needed to start over.
