Calls from battered military spouses increasing

By Paula Lucas | Founder & Executive Director

In 2017 we are experiencing an increase in cases of battered military spouses reaching out for assistance. While the military has a system for reporting domestic abuse, victims are often afraid to speak to a military family advocate. They are worried that if they detail the abuse to an advocate, the report may go from restricted to unrestriced and the abusive spouse will find out they sought help.

We are able to be the anonymous, confidential refuge that these victims need while they are deciding which course of action they want to take. We often work for weeks and months with a victim before they decide what the best options and outcomes are for them.

If you are thinking of donating again to help abused military spouses this holiday season, please consider making a donation to Maribel to help her get counseling.

Thank you for all of your support in 2017!
