Emerald* is a single mother with a seven-year-old daughter. She recently escaped significant physical and emotional abuse by her partner. He was a drug dealer who threatened abused her and attempted to take her life on several occasions. He even threatened her family when they offered to help. She was brave enough to call the police and he was placed into custody. She then sought refuge at Ruby’s Place where she found peace and healing. She now has a great job in San Francisco and has landed a nice apartment to start fresh.
