I was a child witness to Domestic Violence brought on by my father to my mother. In those days there was no domestic violence shelter. Even when the police were called my mother was told "It's a family problem." After my mother was severly beaten by my father, my mother took us to stay at hotel on highway 66. We were cold, hungry and had nothing but the clothes on our back. I can still remember "I don't care, at least I'm safe." Today, I honor Battered Families Services, Inc. as they provide shelter and safety to survivor's of violence. They also provide counseling for women and children; and even to perpetrators to realize what they are doing isn't right. I'm proud to live in a community that has such an organizaiton. Your sup;port of Battered Families Services is appreciated. God Bless You.
