Scared Mother of Three Young Children

“I came to the Women’s community a scared mother of three young children that was trying to figure out how to leave a horrible marriage. I never expected I would find such acceptance and support for what I was going through. They helped me navigate through leaving, divorce and starting my life as a single parent. I would not be where I am today without the Women’s Community. It has been 8 years since the first time I contacted them. I am now a happy single mother with three great kids and recently graduated college. My life is going in the right direction thanks to the help I received when I was struggling to survive and care for my kids. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you, I can never fully express the gratitude I feel.”
