BENEFITING: WOMEN AWARE

EVENT DATE: Jan 19, 2011

Party of Purpose

THE STORY:

I used to live in a shelter for abused women and families who were on the run from significant others. The family of the man I was involved with saw him commit an act of abuse one day and soon as they could get him to leave the house they set things up so that I could get away safely. It brings tears to my eyes to think about that even after all these years. I am now in a healthy relationship and have two beautiful children, but I want to do something to help other women have a safe place to go.

Women Aware, Inc. gave me more than a place to lay my head. They fed and clothed me, provided group and one-on-one counselling, a safe way to contact my family, a court liaison and various other resources. I went there at Christmas time and I remember receiving a Secret Santa gift bag filled with toiletries and a brand new cable knit sweater from a random donor. I cried myself to sleep that night partially with relief that I was so fortunate to receive all of this when I needed it most.

Even if you have never been in this situation, just know from me that the monies, resources, and volunteer services I received meant so much that I must pay it forward so that someone else gets to benefit too.
