You Helped Pat

PatOne night after being beaten and verbally assaulted one too many times, Pat finally got the confidence to leave her abusive boyfriend.

With only the clothes on her back, Pat left – and for the first time in her life, she was homeless. Looking for somewhere safe where she could focus on getting her life back together, Pat found N Street Village.

At the Village, Pat moved into Luther Place Night Shelter, a transitional shelter where a woman can stay until she locates more permanent housing. Pat began feeling hopeful again as she started the hard process of rebuilding her life.

After working with our Employment and Education Center, Pat now has two jobs and is able to afford a place of her own. Pat is happy again—she is safe from violence, employed, and has her own home.

There are so many more women like Pat who find themselves in circumstances they could never have imagined. Please make a gift this holiday season to offer these women a new beginning.

Because of your support of N Street Village, our city’s most vulnerable women have a place to go.  By making a gift today, you will ensure that every woman who walks through our doors in 2013 is offered care and compassion.  These women are counting on you.

Wishing you and your loved ones a Happy New Year,
Schroeder Stribling
Executive Director

P.S. Be sure to make your tax-deductible gift before December 31 – you will be helping women like Pat make a new start in 2013.
