The Journey is Mine.

After calling the Steps to End Domestic Violence hotline, I felt listened to, but I needed more to secure housing after leaving my abuser.

Walking down the hall towards their office in Burlington, I felt nervous - and excited. They seemed like a good fit for me. And once I was introduced to the advocate who would be speaking with me, I got the feeling things would be okay. 

We'd met just minutes ago but it was like talking to an old friend. They listened, asked questions and made it clear that I was in charge. 

The journey is mine - Steps to End Domestic Violence is there to help me find my way. 

Because of your support, about 350 people each year are able to get help with emergency housing. This is so important because leaving an abuser is often one of the most dangerous times for those experiencing domestic violence.
