As moms we welcome a break when someone else will cook and provide a meal for our family. We had the unique opportunity to do just that. Our family was able to make a meal and take it to the Autumn House. The Autumn House is a safe place and a home for survivors of domestic violence and/or sexual assault. They help the residents toward their journey of regaining self-sufficiency and becoming more empowered individuals. For safety and security, the Autumn House keeps their location confidential to protect the safety and privacy of the residents.
As reported by Fox10 News, domestic violence cases is one of the hidden dangers that is rising during the COVID-19 pandemic. “Due to the financial impact of the pandemic, many women are unable to leave the situation when the family may be struggling financially.”
We are grateful to places like the Autumn House that provide a safe place for not just women, but their children as well. Assisting them to get on their feet and on their way to becoming self-reliant.
