You Helped Isabel!

When Isabel emailed Pathways she told us she had been thinking of leaving her abusive husband for a long time. She was tired of his insults, his anger and his violent temper.

Isabel wasn't sure what to do. She has been a stay at home mom and hasn't worked in years. Her family in the USA doesn't know about the abuse. Her adult children left home early because of abuse and are encouraging her to leave.

Isabel communicated with a Pathways advocate over quite a while without her husband knowing. We continued to provide emotional support and let Isabel understand her options. We didn't hear from Isabel for several weeks and we hoped she was okay.

Recently, Isabel let us know that her husband became suspicious of her emails so she needed to stop. But she had enough information and felt confident enough to contact her family and ask for help to get home.

Isabel told us she doesn't think she would have had the courage to tell her family, leave her husband and flee back home without Pathways advocacy and support. Having a confidential email available to victims is critical to their ability to make informed decisions for themselves to leave an abusive partner safely.

Without donors like you such help would not be possible! Thank you!
