Family in a DV Shelter
Organized by: Jose Calzada
Elisabeth and her two daughters, 3 and 6 months, are currently living in a domestic violence shelter and have been there for over a year. The physical violence had been on and off for a few years, and the last straw was in December of 2013 when Elisabeth left her abuser, with nowhere else to go they entered the shelter system. Only working part time and unable to afford a full time baby sitter, this family is struggling. Their time allowed in the shelter system is almost up. Getting very little help from the father of the children they have not been able to afford to start a new life. This is to help them afford a new place to live and expensive for two little girls.
