N.B., Family Violence Survivor, Jan 2003

I have been a client of Safe Moves for eight months.† My case manager there is very helpful to me emotionally, and she is always there for me when I need someone to talk to about my problems.† I am a domestic violence victim.† It didnít happen overnight, but it happened for 14 years.† I have 2 children, 12 and 4 Ĺ.† The oldest has witnessed the violence throughout her life.

 

When I† first came to Safe Moves, my life was a mess. I was helpless, clueless, and confused.† I didnít know what to do with my life or how to protect my children.† I opened my self up to my violence intervention case manager and I knew she was the right person to talk to.† She has always been informative, kind-hearted, helpful, and most of all very understanding.† She helped me through a very frightening time.† I constantly called her after our first meeting and I cried many times while we talked.† My husband is not living with us now and our lives are a lot better, emotionally and physically.† I still call my Safe Moves case manager,† updating her on whatís going on in my life.† I am thankful to God that Iíve met her.† She is my mentor and I will never forget her for the rest of my life.†
