Help Stop Military Family Violence

Project Report | Aug 30, 2018
You helped Brenna escape abuse

By Paula Lucas | Founder & Executive Director

Brenna accompanied her military husband to Germany last year. She was excited to be based in Europe and looked forward to a new start. Her husband had become verbally abusive on several occasions. He told her he was under stress and once they moved to Germany everything would be better.

Instead of getting better, things got worse. Her husband would come home drunk, insult her and accuse her of having affairs. When he hit her one night, she realized she needed to get out of Germany and come home to the USA.

Brenna called Pathways to see what her options were. She worked with one of our case managers for several weeks before we were able to relocate her back to the USA and away from the escalating abuse from her husband.

Brenna is doing well. She has filed for divorce. Brenna is sad that her marriage did not work out but she is hopeful for a better future.

Thank you for helping battered Military spouses like Brenna!

The Pathways Team.
