David had nowhere else to hide.
David and his daughter came to our shelter after fleeing a dangerous abuser who had nearly killed a previous spouse. He was actively seeking them, contacting their family and friends, and even showing up at their homes. David had to do intensive safety planning with our team any time he left the shelter, and often disguised his appearance when away from our building.
After learning David had filed for divorce and was pressing charges, his abuser’s violent threats escalated and he was seen not far from our building. Knowing the risk of harm to this family was drastically increased, we worked with David and his daughter to relocate out-of-state where they’ve begun rebuilding their lives.
