Real Life Story from SAFEline
The SAFEline received its first request for admission via its new chat function from a survivor who was being held in her home by her abusive partner. He would not give her access to a cellphone, but did allow her to access the Internet, and so she was able to communicate with us without her abuser’s knowledge despite him being in the next room. SAFE staff extensively safety planned with the survivor for her to come to the shelter on SAFE’s SafePlace Campus. The survivor told the abuser that she was going to the neighbor’s house to borrow laundry detergent, and she was able to make it to a place where SAFE had a timed cab waiting for her, which brought her to the shelter. The survivor expressed being very happy at being able to be in the presence of others by coming to the shelter, as her activities had been so closely monitored by abuser for so long. She expresses that she is no longer alone and that she is excited now that she “is free” and added “I have my life to look forward to now”.
