Since I’ve been here the case managers have been a blessing. Homeless and not knowing where to turn I called the Crisis Center. They welcomed me with open arms. I came in upset. I have been living in a hotel. Ran out of money. I thank God for this place. I had no support from my family knowing I had been laid off for over a year, then lost my part-time job just six months ago. Please to continue to help all women. This is truly place of refuge. Thank God.
