Real Life

Safe Places, a program of Christian Relief Services, provides transitional housing for victims of domestic violence after they have left their abuser and fled to a temporary shelter.

Women just like "Susan."

She will never forget the day she got the keys to her first, very own apartment where she moved in with her 5-year-old daughter and 4-month-old son.

Nothing could have wiped the smile off her face that morning when she walked into her new home for up to the next two years after living in shelter for the previous several weeks.

On her first night in her new home, Susan said she would be cooking one of her favorite meals for dinner, but she hadn't decided between mac and cheese, lasagna or turkey burgers.

Her 5-year-old daughter was staying with relatives at the time and would be joining her mother and brother in a few days and Susan could not wait to see the look on her face when she sees her new home for the first time.

"She'll be excited," Susan said, adding, "especially to have her own room."

And, as for Susan, what did she think about her new home with a neat interior brick wall, and a balcony overlooking a beautiful wooded area.

"I really love it," she said.
