“I enrolled back in college and have been named to the Dean’s List each semester. I am working toward a degree in Social Work, so that one day I can look into the teary eyes of a broken woman and tell her without hesitation that she can have the life she dreams about; she can live without fear; she can find the strength to do it, because I too, was once a teary-eyed, broken woman who found help at the Crisis Shelter.”
