I Knew I had to Leave

“I spent almost nine years being abused by my husband.  After he pushed me down the stairs when I was pregnant, I knew I had to leave. Although I moved several times he continued to threaten me.  That was when I was helped by Prudence Crandall Center’s court advocates and moved into the emergency shelter.  The staff helped me imagine a better life and take the steps to get there.  I am going to college now and budgeting my money so I can make ends meet.  The future looks brighter than I ever could have imagined!”
