I believe in you. You are not alone. I care about you. You are safe.
You may not know Samuel, but we want you to know that your gift, just like those motivational words above, encouraged him and his family to keep going, step by step, through the long process of healing, rebuilding and achieving a brighter future.
By the tender age of 4, Samuel had already realized that his mom was trying to survive and that her life was in danger. On loud nights, when there was fighting, he would take his sister Jennifer from her crib to make sure their mom, Katrina, didn’t have to worry about one more thing. He thought by keeping Jennifer safe and quiet, he was helping to keep his mom safe, too. Samuel was worried all the time because he heard the violence, he saw the bruises, and he heard the threats of what would happen if Katrina left.
Thankfully, your support allowed Samuel and his family to let go of the constant worry and embrace hope for the first time. You can offer this same gift of hope and belief to other women, men and children at Doorways who are currently making their difficult journeys out of crises and on to bright futures. There are 51 children like Samuel in Doorways’ programs right now, and we expect many more to come with their families in the New Year. Make your gift today to Doorways’ Year-End Campaign to show them you believe in them, their families and their brighter futures:
Through Doorways, your support helps our most vulnerable neighbors achieve the following:
Your gift of hope reached Samuel not only because his mother made the courageous decision to leave, but also because the family received the support they needed to address multiple challenges that resulted from years of abuse and trauma. Samuel is now an honor roll student in middle school, and he lives with his mom and sister in a safe and stable home.
