1. Stephanie, in my volunteer work with homeless families, about a third of which are DV victims. These families are being abused and also lose their home. Kids who have witnessed or experienced DV have a higher propensity than other children to hook up with an abuser or become an abuser as an adult. So, this mental health assistance is crucial, in my view. Thanks for writing this. Keith

  2. I just followed your links and read more about this wonderful organization. The red stitch is such a simple and powerful statement. I worked for a decade as a youth worker in the drug and alcohol field and saw first-hand the devastation that flows on from childhood abuse. I’m so glad to have read your post today, Stephanie. Thank you.

    1. Thank you Dave and thank you for the work that you did with children. Over a decade is very commendable! I think the red stitch is beautiful and couldn’t wait to share this story. 🙂
