Kelly and her twins were referred to us by Ruby’s Place, a shelter for survivors of domestic violence. The twin’s father is not the abuser but doesn’t help financially. Kelly has worked very hard to save money for her new place and feels lucky to have found such a beautiful apartment. She works full-time at a commercial real estate office as an assistant and hopes to get licenses once she is settled. Her apartment was practically empty, with just a few air mattresses and some items the shelter gave her before she moved in.
Volunteers from our Oakland chapter set out to give Kelly and her family the beautiful and comfortable home they need.
Oh my goodness! It’s so beautiful. I love it,” said Kelly.
I have not words. Thank you just doesn’t seem like enough”.
