Project Report | May 9, 2014
Jordan And Cole Have A New Home Because Of You!

By Paula Lucas | Founder & Executive Director

After we were able to get Rachel and her two sons, Jordan and Cole, back to the USA after years of abuse, they needed a safe place to stay. They went into a domestic violence shelter temporarily. This weekend they will move into a two bedroom apartment because donations to this project paid for Rachel's first month rent. A local nonprofit provided bunk beds for Jordan and Cole, a couch and some household items. Here is a note from Rachel:

"This is going to be the best Mother's Day present ever! The boys are so happy. It is our first apartment together where we won't have to be afraid. I can read them bedtime stories, and laugh and play and be normal.. I will never again have to hear my boys ask, "Mommy, why does daddy make bruises? I am crying as I am writing this, not because I am sad, but because I am so happy. I wouldn't have been able to do this without you. Thank you from all of us!"

We want to thank you for giving Rachel, Jordan and Cole a new home. We have so many battered mothers that need help. If you are able, please consider another donation to this project in honor of mother's day to help us rescue more battered mothers and children this summer.

We hope you have a Happy Mother's Day with the mothers in your life!
