Danielle Lutton ~ SHELTER - Card #2

You call another shelter and they have space. You tell the shelter advocates about the sexual abuse and that you will never let your baby get hurt again. The shelter makes ask if you made a report to Child Protective Services?

You decide to go farther away since John threatened to track you down if you ever left him. You get a leave of absence from work. The advocates refer you to a shelter in California and you leave on a night bus.

The shelter staff in California is very supportive and helpful. You begin to sort out your different options.
