ELIZABETH'S STORY

When you meet Elizabeth and hear her story, you are immediately struck by her determination and resilience. This is the first time in many years that she and her daughter, Martha (13), and sons Gael (11) and Sebastian (6) have had a home of their own.

A few years ago, she and her children, along with her then-partner, who is the father of one of the children, all shared a room in a house with another family. Elizabeth essentially had to support her family, as her partner was not able to hold down a job. The situation was difficult enough as it was, but then her partner became physically and emotionally abusive, especially when Elizabeth worked overtime. The situation became untenable to the point where Elizabeth reached out to the Center for Domestic Peace, who—thankfully—was able to help the family leave their situation and find safety in a shelter. 

After six months in the shelter, the family moved to transitional housing, where they lived until moving into their current home at the beginning of the year. Even though the home is essentially empty, and the family is sleeping on floors, Elizabeth is thrilled and grateful to finally have a place of her own and to be at peace. She works full time at a local cafe and signs up for as much overtime as possible, without being afraid to face abuse when returning home. She is a highly valued employee and was recently offered a promotion, which she was unfortunately unable to accept due to her children's school schedules. But, as soon as she is able, she plans to move up to positions of higher responsibility so that she can provide a better life for her children.
