Tattered, beaten, hopeless and eight months pregnant for an abusive husband, she fled on the next plane out.
Once she arrived in St. Thomas she was connected to Family Resource Center. Inc. (FRC). She was taken to the safehouse, her 4 year old daughter in tow. She repeated her gratitude. When asked what she needed most, she said, "a peaceful and safe nights sleep." This is the story of only one of the victims I know of that this agency has helped to restore and transition to her own apartment. FRC operates on at 24 hour basis, serving victims of Domestic Violence, Sexual Assault and other violent crimes. The leadership is dynamic, the staff are trained professionals for whom client education and safety, are paramount along with confidentiality. There is always a live person on the other end of the hotline (340-776-STOP).
