For ten years, Yvonne had lived in the same local home after fleeing her violent husband with teenage children. As her children became adults and moved out, Yvonne struggled to pay rent on her own and surmount increasing debit. Unable to make ends meet, Yvonne was living with a friend before calling our shelter for help.
