A CARE House Hero Mom (A note from her side)

“We will all, at times in our lives, face trials. These off script storms in our lives, hit us when we weren’t expecting, on July 15, 2016. On that day I walked in on my husband molesting my daughter. At that moment I felt washed over with complete hopelessness, confusion, anger, and sadness; unable to fully grasp all of the emotions and understand what was happening. We were held at gunpoint for about an hour while I begged and pleaded for him to let us go. We went to the hospital and the process was scary as we met our investigator. She was outstanding and helpful – full of reasoning. She told me about CARE House, and briefly explained what we should expect. I have lived in Florence all my life and had never heard of such a place. The CARE House has been a safe haven for my children and me. They have been encouraging when we needed it the most. They provide a safe place that we can go and talk about what happened. It is a place that teaches us coping skills and that it was not our fault. CARE House is a place of comfort and listening. Without CARE House, I honestly don’t know how we would be doing. They are helping us in our journey of healing and they go above and beyond!”
