Please help Anise move out of a shelter

A microproject by Pathways to Safety International Vetted since 2008 Top Ranked Effective Nonprofit Project of the Month Site Visit Verified

Summary

Just before the holidays we helped Anise flee abuse in France and come back to the USA with her baby. We were able to get Anise into a domestic violence shelter close to her parents. Anise's abusive husband is already looking for her so it is not safe for her to stay with her mom and dad. We are helping Anise get into her own apartment. We are short $800 to secure the first months' rent and deposit.

Challenge

American women like Anise that flee abuse with their children often have to go into a domestic violence shelter. Without access to any financial resources, re-establishing their lives back home can be very difficult.

Solution

Anise will be able to move into her own apartment with her baby and begin her new job mid-January.

Long-Term Impact

The project serves 500 women per year empowering them to find alternatives to a life of violence so their children grow up in violence free homes with their self-esteem in tact with the hope of stopping the cycle of violence in future generations.
