Joanne thanks you!

Joanne was afraid to report the abuse of her husband to a military advocate. She knew she was in a potentially lethal situation and if she went to the advocate on the base to give a restricted report, one that is confidential, the advocate would have to override that and make it an unrestricted report. Then her husband and his commanding officer would know she had reported domestic violence and she was afraid.

Joanne called us and we were able to work with Joanne for a few weeks while she worked through all of her safety concerns. After extensive safety planning we found a safe place for Joanne to stay close to the base so she would not have to go back home after she reported the abuse. Thanks to your generous donations we were able to keep Joanne safe and her case is moving forward through military channels. Thank you so much!
