Please accept our donation to be used for your shelter. You have helped many families rebuild their lives. I was once a resident at your shelter and you literally have me back my life. I’d probably be dead by now had I not been able to get away from my ex. Thank God it turned out differently.”

-letter accompanying a donation to Elizabeth Freeman Center

When I was young, my family suffered so greatly. My mom chose alcohol to ease the suffering and in the absence of better coping strategies my father used his fists to soothe himself. Thanks to people like you, I found a better way, safety, and pride. My three boys will never feel the fear I did. Thank you.”

-note to one of our youth educators
