I am a victim of domestic viloence. My exhusband tried to kill me almost two years ago. The case has still not gone to trial. I had never even heard of Harbor House until this happened to me. I can't find enough words to express the gratitude and respect I have for this organization. They have been there for me time after time. Since this happened I have been to HARBOR HOUSE at least 20 times for help, guidance, or just to have someone listen to me. Domestic Violence is the Secret Sin that no one wants to face or deal with. It just doesn't fit into a lifestyle unless you have lived it or are in it now..I can truly say with all my heart if it hadn't been for Harbor House and my ADVOCATE I would have given up a long time ago. I love Harbor House and will help them in every way I can as soon as this is behind me!!
