I called to talk about my situation and Tiffany answered after about 8 rings. She was not helpful. She voulntarily told me she has worked there for a month which makes me understand why she does not understand domestic violence. She definately should not be in charge of intake calls. Give the girl some training. People should be able to get away from a variety of abusive situations. She put me on hold and told me we only house people who are being abused, no questions about my storyand when I asked who she spoke with she would not provide me a name and hung up on me. I expected better from a place who has so much public funding. I suggest people to donate somewhere else.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Staff people who are caring. Utilize the resources appropriately.

where do you tell a victim to go when they need shelter and you simply say sorry we have a waitlist. What do you think they are going to do? They are going to stay with the abuser because it's the only place they have...........

Amazing organization that truly helps the public. Would not know what we would do without them. The help they provide to women in need and knowledge they spread to the public is un measureable.
