Read Jackie’s Story*
In 2006, I became a victim of domestic violence. I felt silly; I am an educated woman with a degree, and I often wonder how I could have let it happen. Blow after blow, it was apparent I had to get out. I called liveSAFE Resources and it was one of the best calls that I ever made.
Pregnant and with my three children, I came to their domestic violence shelter. We were tired and hungry. It was my last chance, my only hope. We were provided more than just what our bodies needed; we received emotional support from great counselors and the hope to rebuild our lives.
I will be forever grateful for the safety and support that liveSAFE Resources and their passionate staff provided. That day, they saved five heartbeats.
