As my time at the shelter comes to an end, I am anxious but excited to start the next phase of my life. I am grateful for everything you all have done to help me and my boys. I know I have not been easy to deal with at times but I appreciate your patience, compassion and dedication. Everyone has been so helpful and I am beyond grateful. A part of me is scared that I cannot do this on my own and I am tempted to recoil but everyone’s positive words come to mind and I know it will all be okay.
When I came to the Women’s Shelter I had nothing and now I am leaving with a feeling of peace and hope for the future. I am forever thankful for everything all the staff has done for me and my children. I went from being a victim of abuse to a survivor with the skills, confidence and hope to succeed. You saw something in me and helped me to see it too! These past few months have been hard and life changing. I am forever grateful for your kind hearts and compassion. You truly care and have taught me a lot about myself and how to deal with others around me.
Thank you for never giving up on me or put me out. I know I can succeed now.
