I was in a domestic abuse situation,it was alot of lying on the part of the female I was abused by finally it was discovered by law enforcement along with much else and they charged her with a felony because of the way she tortured me.i met with the d.a.,and they couldn't figure out why a rep from friends wasn't at the meeting so I was given a card and told to call so I did and they refused to help me I don't know why I was treat so disrespectful from what I've gathered it's cause I'm a male and I tried to call other people at friends and it's all women not 1 man was available.ive done my research this place is a scam 15 employees at the one by me they do little as possible.it is such a waste of government money even worse the private donations.its less than a month from 2017 men in relationships with females are getting abused probably ten million%more than ever before but there are no support systems in place like there are for women its just very troubling that certain females can destroy men with nothing but a few lies the man loses his children,all possesions and in some cases their freedom.after alllllll that the female is caught lying nothing happens!then when i call "friends" they cant help me.if i would have changed my voice to sound like a female they wouldve been asking what they could do to help me IMMEDIATELY!so friends of abused families in west bend wi. is a place that should have its funding cut yesterday!there are many many great programs that deserve,need and do so much more in west bend wi.
Youth&family,st.vincent depaul.thank GOD for good programs like those.but due to funding cuts those programs are ending.bottom line something has to be done!some oversight with friends of abused familes.
