“I made the life-changing decision to call to the police in January of 2014 after my ex-partner assaulted me. A couple days after the incident, Meghan from HomeFront’s Domestic Violence Intervention and Resource Team (DVIRT) gave me a call, and introduced herself as my case manager. At the time I didn’t realize the impact she would soon have on my life.
Over the coming months I began to lean on my HomeFront case manager a lot. Dealing with the police and the courts was all new to me, and I was so intimidated by those bigger systems at first, but having HomeFront on my side during that time made a world of difference.
I can honestly say that without HomeFront, I wouldn’t have survived.
My HomeFront case manager was there to support me along the way, and when I was having my doubts about doing it on my own, she was right there telling me how strong I was and how I deserved better. Hearing those words gave me the confidence I needed to keep going, and to continue fighting for a better life for me and my children.
I am in a much better place in my life now. My home is no longer a scary, dangerous place, and I am no longer afraid. Because of HomeFront, my children and I are happy now, and for that I am forever grateful.”
