Survivor Stories


Yesterday, today and for almost a year, I have felt hopeless…

….not having someone who cares enough to step up and help me to get out of the grips of my husband who hurts me physically every single day!

I have told people that I need help, but they just give me a look as if they don’t care…

I fear for my life every single day!

I fear for my children every single day!
I fear for my parents and my siblings every single day, because he knows where they all are, and has threatened to hurt them all if I leave.

When is society going to step up and make it know that this type of behavior will not be tolerated from anyone?!

What….Does our society not care?????!!!

I guess not!

If you or someone you know needs help, call the Groundwork 24-Hour Domestic Violence Hotline at (815) 729-1228.
