DON'T FORGET TO USE PROMO CODE:#50
By: Madison Caver, Case Manager
This is the story of how Jessica utilized S.A.F.E., Inc. to get away from her abusive spouse. Jessica’s husband was verbally and physically abusive. Jessica had children, but they were in a temporary safety plan with human services. This safety plan was partly due to the abusive behaviors within the home. The children were not abused, but they did witness the abuse towards their mother. Jessica left after being physically abused, but returned a few days later. A few days following her return, she experienced verbal abuse. At this time, Jessica called the S.A.F.E., Inc. hotline number and was approved for emergency shelter.
After calling S.A.F.E., Inc., Jessica entered the shelter with her daughter soon following her. Jessica and her child were able to utilize many of S.A.F.E., Inc.’s services. These services included clothing closet, transportation, tutoring, counseling, court advocacy, and case management. Court advocacy and legal services were provided to assist with protection orders and divorce. Jessica and her daughter had access to individual counseling, support group, and children’s education group. The family also received case management for housing, food, and hygiene assistance.
With help from S.A.F.E., Inc., Jessica and her child were able to start over with a new and healthy lifestyle. Sarah was able to save money and find housing. The family received household items from S.A.F.E., Inc.’s warehouse of donated goods. Jessica and her family are now living a safe and productive life together. As part of her recovery plan, Jessica hopes to regain custody of her other children.
