Success Story: Safe Transition

September 25, 2018 Healing Heroes

“Equality” a mother of three contacted Odyssey House Crisis Line. Odyssey House Crisis Intervention workers assisted the woman in developing a safety plan to leave the relationship over a period of time so as to not alert the abuser. Finally, after weeks of work with the team, “Equality” safely made the transition to Odyssey House Emergency Shelter. It was later determined that this family was in extreme danger and needed to be in a secure and safe environment. The family was referred to Serenity Place  our second stage shelter. With the assistance of a Family Support Worker the mother was able to get reinforcement from the legal system to protect the family. Within a year, the family moved safely into the community!

Thank you to the real life women behind “Equality”who share their stories.
