The work that I do as a the Housing Program Coordinator for Valencia Shelter Services is very important to me. I have the amazing privilege of helping families become stable in housing so that they can heal from the traumatic effects of domestic violence, sexual assault and child abuse. I feel honored that these brave souls have trusted me to be a part of their journey. It is my intention to offer hope, support and to treat each family with dignity and respect.
Domestic Violence is the leading predictor of child abuse
1 in 4 females will experience domestic violence in her lifetime
1 in 9 males will experience domestic violence in his lifetime
50% of girls growing up in an abusive home will become victims as adults
I am passionate about the work I do because I was part of the 50% that grew up in an abusive home and I was the 1 in 4 that experienced domestic violence. My children have felt the effects of domestic violence in their life. If it was not for the services I received and the support of my family, I would not be thriving today. Our journey has not been an easy one and our healing will always be ongoing.
Your donation will enable us to help many families begin their journey of healing.
