Now SAFEHOME is in trouble. They are finding it increasingly difficult to provide even the basics of care for the victims of domestic violence. So much so that they have requested assistance through our COPPS unit in obtaining the kind of basic things that we take for granted.
Imagine again for a moment trying to move on with your life in the arms of strangers and having to deal with a limited amount of diapers for your children, personal hygiene aids for yourself, a lack of sleepwear, shoes, and even toilet paper. When you think about it, this added degradation on top of obvious abuse is almost too difficult for us to contemplate.
It is a Midwest tradition left over from our pioneer forefathers that we watch out for and help our neighbors in need. I am hoping that we can count on that spirit of generosity during this difficult period of time for SAFEHOME.
