As a client, i know how many women and children have been helped just in the time I have been here.
These people do all they can to help women and children get back on thier feet to live productive and safe lives again, giving them a safe place to be.
I cannot say enough about this treasure in Burns. Right in the middle of nowhere is a Shelter for any woman that is afraid for their lives and the lives of their children.
When I came here I was scared, lost and felt like a total failure. Laura, the Director, gave of herself and time to help me get past all of those fears, and gave me a place to call "home" until I find a way to get back on my feet again.
I wish to thank Laura and the staff and all the board members for what they do and continue to do on a daily basis. I pray you are able to stay around for many years to come.

My whole life has changed because of me being here. In very good ways.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Find a way for them to get more funding so that they can continue to stay open. Being in a small town, they get overlooked by many grants in Oregon. They need money to stay open.
