She stopped into the store to make a donation of clothing – but started sharing a bit of her story with one of our volunteers, who came to get me!
“I understand you’ve got some challenges,” I said. That simple statement opened a flood gate of emotion!
She poured out her heart, sharing that her ex-husband had been stalking her, had put a tracking device on her phone, had other people following her and when she contacted the police, they contacted him to see if that was true. Now she and her granddaughter were facing homelessness in a few weeks because the place they were staying had been sold. It was all overwhelming!
I gave her my phone and let her sit in our office to contact a few of our partner agencies about resources she needed – without fear of her phone calls being tracked. She connected with domestic violence agencies that could offer safe housing – even pet-friendly facilities that would accommodate her granddaughter’s support dogs.
Her granddaughter came the next day for much need clothing and returned the following day to volunteer with a grateful heart!
That’s what YOU make possible with your support of our mission – that’s women helping women!
We’re HERE for HER!
