I posted a previous negative review, which I had trouble taking down because I wasn't signed in. I have managed to take it down but feel it may be helpful to keep this as a positive clarification. The situation mentioned was a personal problem not related to anyone's work. And I know the individual concerned truly cares about the work that he/she does and wants to do do good. That is why the person works at Casa Myrna. There were a lot of external factors to the situation, and it must have been scary for everyone involved. That always happens when one is personally connected to a situation. But the related staff member had helped me a lot in the past, and that is how I came to know about Casa Myrna and the good work that you do. I am very grateful to her for all the times she has helped me. Please forgive me for writing a negative review. I don't want it to negatively impact anyone's work or career opportunities, and had hoped that writing a review would not cause a problem for anyone from the start. I am also absolutely sure that this person respects client confidentiality--mine was a very different situation.
Casa Myrna has transformed my life and that of my children by helping me break the cycle of violence that has haunted my family for generations! They have been an instrumental source of support, empowerment and shelter when I most needed. My story is one of pain, courage and triumph…too long to share in this setting but I will briefly summarize it. I was seventeen in high school with a one year old daughter and son on the way and no safe place to go. I was turned away from other DV shelters because of my age, that’s when Casa Myrna Vazquez opened their doors to me. That day nineteen years ago I was born again and I've since lived everyday to the fullest for me and my children. I was given a second chance at life and I took it! Thank you Casa Myrna Vazquez for starting the cycle of healthy happy living that will continue for generations to come!
