DOMESTIC VIOLENCE PROJECT INC
May 31, 2010

After nearly 10 years in an abusive marriage, I left my home (at the advice of my counselor at Renew). I cannot even begin to tell you what it felt like to leave my home. Even more so, what it felt like that first night in the shelter to know that I was safe. I spent 5 months at the shelter due to court procedings and rulings. During this time, I recieved group and individual counseling. The staff became like family to my girls and I. When I first got there, I didn't believe in myself at all. Each of the staff members believed in me. They saw in me what I couldn't find in myself. With the help of counseling and support, I started to find myself and believe in myself. When I was able to leave the shelter, they helped with toiletries as well as food. They also gave me a gift card from furnishing a fresh start to purchase items for my home. I am still in counseling at renew. It has been two years since I left my home. Not a day goes by that I don't feel blessed by all they did for me. I am convinced that without renew and DVPI I would not be where I am today.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

my daily life. In DVPI, I have found myself and the strength to move forward. I am learning to believe in myself. I am finding my way.

More feedback

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

they give without expecting anything in return.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

some of the most caring people I have ever met. They changed me and my world...so much so that I cried when I left and missed them terribly.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

change the lives of women like me....one person at a time.
