Saving Lives, Giving Hope
It was good because the other person listened. It helped to just not to be afraid to talk about it, to make you feel like you’re not crazy — because you can get to a point where that’s exactly how you feel.
Domestic violence is NOT a family matter. It is everyone’s business. It affects us all even if we are not directly abused.
The Hotline arms victims with a truth that can eventually truly set them free.
