Lat Friday night we received a call from a woman who had been contacted by a victim of violence who was on the run. Shelters were called- there was no room. Through the efforts of community, the woman was gotten a hotel room, was able to speak with legal counsel to find our her options and directed to the right resources. But most of all, she was not alone.
Every community needs a Task Force. The big agencies are great and they are needed- but so are the people who step up on Friday night and say “I am here to help you.”
