“This is the first time in years that I have felt completely safe!”
“HELP! I left my abuser two years ago, but he just showed up at my home – threatening to kill me & my kids!”
Jane called the RESPOND hotline terrified.
The RESPOND counselor discussed options – giving her guidance on how to navigate the court system in order to talk to her abuser’s probation officer and file for a new restraining order.
They also made sure that Jane and her children were able to relocate safely to emergency shelter.
Jane was granted a lifetime restraining order, and there is a warrant out for the arrest of her abuser due to his violating the stay away/no contact condition of his probation.
Jane began to cry on the phone and said, “This is the first time in years that I have felt completely safe!”
HELP OTHERS LIKE JANE!
The support that RESPOND was able to provide Jane empowered her to go back to court and advocate for herself both in front of the judge and with the probation officers.
You can help RESPOND make sure the hotline is always staffed and that our emergency shelter is ready to help re-locate families in high risk situations – like Jane and her children!
