“When I was accepted at Exodus, I felt relief, hope and pride. I was beyond happy the day I moved in because now I would be able to provide safety for myself and my child. When she saw the house for the first time she said “Wow, mommy! Thanks for getting me a house.  “I have my own room!” Having a place of our own means that we can move forward and grow as a family. With case management and setting goals, I have someone to talk to and help out along the way. Having the support that Exodus gives means having someone you know care about you being successful as much as you.”

“I am finally safe! There is no more abuse in my life now that I am in my own place, for which I am extremely appreciative and thankful! I was really scared but excited for my new beginning when I was able to move in. My child felt secure the first night that we stayed at our own apartment. I am doing this on my own, but I have the Exodus support system to help me provide independence for myself and security for my son.”
