“Ella” and her daughter entered the Crisis Center after she’d been so severely beaten that her eye socket was completely damaged. Despite her injuries, she started every day with a smile and positive attitude.
Ella believed it was important to teach her child how to be resilient and to never give up hope. She knew her daughter was watching and was determined to set a good example. Ella participated in budgeting, life skills and healthy relationship classes.
With the help of her Case Manager, she was recommended and selected for a transitional housing program in another county.
Although Ella was nervous about leaving Cooke County, she desperately wanted a new start.
Abigail’s Arms provided transportation, housing goods for Ella’s new place and toys for her daughter’s new room.
As Ella packed to leave the Crisis Center, she was still smiling and through tears of gratitude, thanked everyone for helping her and her little girl have a brand-new start.
