You get it in your head that it is your fault and that you created this – but that’s not true, there is something wrong with the person who abuses you...it’s not you. If it weren’t for the YWCA’s Safe House, I don’t know where I would be right now. It was through this program that I have completely changed my life around and created a better future for my kids.
