THE STORY:

YOUR COMPASSION TRANSFORMS LIVES

JBWS gave us more than a safe place to stay, food and clothes. They treated us with respect, taught us life skills, and restored our dignity.” — a safe house resident

The journey through the doors of JBWS provides a respite from the violence and abuse and leads to protection, peace of mind, renewed self-esteem, and self-sufficiency.

Our safe housing, 24-hour helpline, crisis counseling, children’s services, legal assistance, and batterer’s intervention helps individuals and families to live free from violence.

Our transitional housing, vocational counseling, and financial literacy programs help victims to get back on their feet and move toward a secure future.

Thousands more are provided community and school education and training to prevent teen dating abuse and domestic violence.

Jessica Dreamed of a Happy Ending: Here's Her Story

When I was 18, I thought I had met the man of my dreams.  We would have a family and live happily ever after.  In time, however, our relationship began to change—for the worse.

Once while in the car, we got into a disagreement over something so minor.  He stopped the car, held me down, and clenched his hands tightly around my neck as my 11 month-old-daughter watched.  Then, he forced us both out of the car and into the rain.

I will never forget coming home drenched from the rain, and looking in the bathroom mirror at the marks around my neck. I knew I couldn’t stay.

I moved into JBWS’ safe house.  There, I learned so much about my right to be safe and became determined to live free from abuse.  In the JBWS transitional living program, I received counseling and legal support to get a divorce.  I have a full-time waitressing job, attend budgeting classes at JBWS, and am a full-time student at a county college working toward a nursing degree.

Thanks to the people that make this service possible, my happy ending is now. I’m moving forward free from domestic violence.
