Linda is Grateful
Linda found herself in a very abusive relationship and had no where to turn. Then she found about the Center for Women and Children. “I’m so thankful for all the love and encouragement my daughter and I were shown. Today I have a great job, my respect, and a wonderful apartment. Thanks for your help in really changing my life.”
