Ruth* sat in the Bethany house office, the day before moving into her new apartment and was all smiles. Yet, it had not always been this way. On February 24th, 2015 we got a phone call from Ruth and she was seeking shelter from her abuser.
“I knew I had to do something or my child and I were going to be really hurt again. I only had enough money for three nights in the hotel. On Monday, our money was gone and I got in touch with Bethany House. Ms. Becky said to come and they would wait for me. I did not get there till after 5pm and the staff was all there waiting to help. I was so touched that they had stayed late. They did everything needed to take care of my son and I. That evening, we were safe in the shelter and I was so happy. We were safe”.
Now, on April 30, Ruth was on her way. She had regained her strength, felt secure and happy and was making plans for safe future for her and her son. Bethany House helped her with career coaching and resume preparation. She was given clothing suitable to wear to an interview. We helped her secure transitional housing and Ruth is enrolled in our two year After Care program. We will do everything possible to make sure that Ruth and her son make the transition to a safe and productive life.
