Debra and Hero’s Story

client photo 2

Debra lived in Florida with her wife who had dementia. She never even dreamed about leaving until it turned violent. So she came out here to escape. She was given our crisis line number and eventually was able to move into our shelter. In the time she’s been at the house, she utilized our transportation services to medical appointments, attended support groups, received therapy, worked with a family law attorney and eventually was able to find housing with the help of our advocates. She now lives happy and healthy in a safe home with her dog. She says she left the shelter “..with a new found gratitude, self-worth, and knowledge. My life was saved because of DVSAC.”

Thank you to all our donors and supporters who helped ensure Debra and Hero found a happy ending!
