One phone call saved Angie’s life
“I was with my ex for 5 years. During that time he manipulated, drugged, financially devastated, neglected, strangled, and nearly killed me. The physical abuse was terrible, and the emotional damage was just as hurtful.
Although I couldn’t have known it then, the minute I first connected with Raphael House, my life was spared.
Their staff listened and provided me with endless resources, support, insight, and encouragement. With their help, I created a safety plan and left him for good. Afterwards, Raphael House connected me with their housing program, and I got into my own apartment. My advocate found me clothing for job interviews, arranged for an eye appointment and contact lenses, and enrolled me in a program that will pay for dental work to repair damage from the abuse. I’m still participating in art therapy and getting help with applying for jobs in the Advocacy Center.”
