Survivors are greeted with warmth and compassion when they call the helpline; a beautifully made bed and kitchen stocked with food welcomes them when they enter our shelter; leases are being signed and survivors are moving into a home of their own; tissues are passed during counseling sessions and smiles shared across screens; and restraining orders are being filed and legal information is being shared. 

WTLC is open, operating, and responding to more survivor needs than ever before. Using virtual platforms and providing in-person sessions [with masks and honoring social distancing 😊], WTLC is continuing to offer services, reaching out to those who are the most vulnerable. Violence is on the rise across the nation and survivors seeking help are encountering even more barriers. Our helpline calls are 135% higher than this time last year, and in the midst of all the challenges and uncertainty, the survivors in our programs share their gratitude. So, on this #feelgoodfriday, WTLC would like to pause and share our own gratitude.

From the bottom of our hearts to you, thank you. Thank you for caring, loving, and supporting this essential work. And Angelica said it best: “You really make [our] heart[s] smile.”
