A Shining Light in a Dark Time

Survivors Among Us

Stories that Inspire Hope

When I first came to One Safe Place, it was just to talk with someone about ways that I could ease up the pressure at home. I knew things had been tough lately, but it wasn’t anything that I couldn’t fix with some advice. I was living in denial.
I am thankful that I was able to find friends at SafeHaven. Y’all have saved my life in more ways than one.  I learned that not all problems pass with time, and that my daughter and I are so much stronger than we think.  I also learned that I am not alone. After a few visits with the client service staff (we love Chad and Perry!) and growing tension at home, I made a safety plan to leave, and we haven’t looked back.
With help from SafeHaven, my daughter and I can sleep soundly at night while making plans for the future.  I wish we never had to use your services, but I will never regret my decision to stop by your office that afternoon to quietly ask for help.
Thank you, SafeHaven for being a shining light in such a dark time.  Olivia and I are grateful.
