Survivors Thrive: Rita survived the unimaginable with YWCA’s help and guidance

Sep 13, 2021

Rita came to YWCA’s shelter after being sexually assaulted. Before our attorney could file an Order of Protection, Rita had to leave because her ex-husband abused their young child so badly that she had to be flown to an out-of-state trauma center. The girl did not survive, but Rita did get to say goodbye. YWCA is guiding Rita through the criminal hearings for her ex and working with Child Protective Services to return her other child back to her custody, and move them into their new home at YWCA’s Gateway Vista apartments.
