Katrina's Story

Katrina
“If I save one person from abuse, my life will be meaningful.”

Katrina

When I came to Hope Place . . . it was divine intervention. I knew I was supposed to be here. I love the Alpha classes, the Bible classes, and helping others as a domestic violence support intern.

You help save lives like Katrina’s. Your generosity gave her a place to heal and flourish!

 

 

“My mom was mentally ill and abusive. She shouldn’t have had any kids, but she had nine of us. I thought one of my brothers or my sister would die . . . I lived in fear,” says Katrina.

“In college, I met someone and got married. As soon as he knew I was there to stay, the abuse started. He even punched me in the stomach when I was pregnant. I thought he was trying to kill our baby. You can’t have self-respect and be mentally and physically abused every day. 

“When I came to Hope Place (Women and Children's Shelter) . . . it was divine intervention. I knew I was supposed to be here. I love the Alpha classes, the Bible classes, and helping others as a domestic violence support intern. 

“As Christians and survivors of domestic abuse, we need to let young women know what a safe person is; they don’t have to stay in abuse. You can’t change your past. But you can change somebody’s future. That’s my goal and my purpose that God showed me.”
