Tears of Joy

Posted on January 31, 2017

After the holidays have gone by, we are still here to help families 365 days a year—and YOU can help, too.

Trudy is a mom of three who escaped as violent history of domestic violence. In fact, as many as 80% of our residents are fleeing for their lives by the time they get to us, homeless and alone.

Our first line of defense is to ease their hunger. Then we offer them a safe, comfortable place to stay…free from abuse and fear. This opens the door to trauma counseling for healing and real lasting change, giving moms and their children hope for a brighter tomorrow.

Together, we can turn their tears of pain into tears of joy.

Be their tears of joy
