You helped LeeAnne & Olan!

When LeeAnne called us from Paraguay, she was terrified. Her husband had been threatening to kill her and her son Olan if she ever tried to leave him. He had become very violent. He held a position as an executive in a large company and she didn't think anyone would believe her if she told them of the abuse. She explained her bruises away by telling his work colleagues how clumsy she was, always tripping and falling, while her husband glared at her smugly.

We spent several weeks safety planning with LeeAnne so she could safely escape with Olan back to the USA. LeeAnne did not feel it was safe to go home to her parents house so we arranged shelter for her in a town in the same State as her parents.

LeeAnne and Olan are safe in shelter. She knows she has a long road ahead of her but feels confident. Here is an exerpt from an email LeeAnne sent us.

"Thank God for Pathways. Without you I don't know if we would have survived. I am so happy I found you."

We want to thank you for supporting this project and battered women like LeeAnne!

Best wishes, The Pathways' Team
