A Story of Resilience and Rebuilding

The following letter was written by a woman who resided in our shelter, Mary’s Place, this year.  It is her story, in her own words.

I was an educator with a Master’s Degree and a very successful career. I raised two wonderful children. Everyone in my family thought I was happy. However, I was a domestic violence victim and I hid the secret, my unhappiness, and the abuse from everyone.
