I didn’t know where to go

“When my husband kicked me out of the house with our two children, I didn’t know where to go.  I called the Prudence Crandall Center hotline feeling really alone and worried that we would be homeless.  They picked us up and brought us to the shelter.  I was so nervous and my kids were pretty traumatized.  But the staff surrounded all of us with the reassurance we needed to feel safe and work through it all.  From that first day I knew we were going to be okay – that I had more options than just living with the abuse or being homeless.  I knew that we now had people in our lives who were going to be our safety net and help us find our way to a better life.”
