Relief Program

“I called the hotline late one night after my boyfriend went out.  I had been thinking about it for a long time, but never had the courage to call.  I didn’t have a black eye or broken arm…I convinced myself that what I was dealing with wasn’t so bad.  As soon as I heard the caring voice of the Prudence Crandall Center staff person who answered the phone I could tell she knew what I was going through.  We talked about my boyfriend’s emotional abuse and threats, and how I felt like I had no way out.  And then she told me that I wasn’t alone, that she was there to listen and connect me to the help I needed. That night I found the inner strength I had lost long ago and I knew I was going to be okay.”
