According to The Family Place CEO Paige Flink,
“What do I wish? I wish women and children were safe from violence at home. I wish there were not so many people in our community who need help to escape family violence, making it hard for us to fill all the requests for shelter. I wish The Family Place had to close because no one needed our services.
“But in reality, the demand for help often exceeds our ability to help. So, instead, I have to wish that our amazing supporters will continue to be generous and give to The Family Place so we can be there to say ‘Yes, there is a room for you in the shelter tonight.’”
