Stacy’s Success Story
My name is Stacy. I am 26 years old and the mother of two handsome
boys; Steven 5, who started kindergarten this fall and Preston
3, who attends Head Start preschool. I can say 100% that if I
did not live in the House of Hope I would not be here to tell
Just one year ago I was living on my own after twice putting
my children’s father in jail for domestic abuse. Unfortunately
after being released from jail, it didn’t take long for
him to find us. He broke into my new home so many times I eventually
started living with my friends and in my car with my two little
boys. That was when a counselor at the Battered Women’s
Shelter recommended the House of Hope. By moving to the House
of Hope the children’s father can no longer break into
my home and he cannot harass me.
Now I am back in school. I also work full-time at Apac, I
am on tow Boards of Directors and I am a full-time mom with
two perfect little boys.
My children’s father has also improved. We he could
no longer get to us, he felt something for the first time in
a long time. Now he is a “recovering” drug addict
as well as a counselor for other domestic abusers.
I am safe and my children are safe. Thank you, House of Hope.
